Group O Partners With Quad Cities River Bandits To Help Local Charities

As a 100% Hispanic-owned business, Group O was proud to partner with the Quad Cities River Bandits this baseball season to celebrate the Hispanic and Latino communities by sponsoring “Bandidos del Río de las Ciudades Cuádruples”, Minor League Baseball’s (MiLB) “Copa de la Diversión” or “Fun Cup” series.

During each “Copa Wednesday” home game, Bandits players wore a specialty “Bandidos del Río” uniform featuring Rascal wearing a sombrero and signature bandana in a serape-inspired design. These jerseys were auctioned off and raised $2,500 to be donated to a local charity selected by Group O. Group O has selected LULAC to receive those funds.

Along with their sponsorship, Group O also partnered with the Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce by recognizing small businesses and non-profit organizations in the Hispanic community during every Wednesday home game throughout the season. Those businesses included Chocolate Manor, Rosales Lawn Care, QC Ballet Folklorico, Cruz Cutz, LULAC, R&D Towing, Jennie’s Boxcar, AlienBoi Boxing Academy, TapOnIt, and Campos Mufflers.

“We’re so excited to present these funds to LULAC as part of our ongoing efforts to reach out to our Latino community,” said Maria Ontiveros, community liaison at Group O. “Group O chose to support the local LULAC councils because they are a driving force behind the improvements in the quality of life for the Hispanic community. Their scholarship program aligns with Group O’s philanthropic focus of providing educational opportunities to youth.”
