One such organization that was deserving of such admiration and donation is the Eastern Shore Repertory Theatre (ESRT). Having been a part of the organization for numerous years, 68 Ventures Chairman and Founder Nathan Cox, sees firsthand the impact this group has made in the community.
"I can't begin to describe the impact that ESRT has had on our family and this entire community,” said Cox. “Erin (Langley) and her amazing team continually blow my mind show after show, but the real significance of their passion is the people they shape our kids into. Every quality you'd hope to find in your child, they instill. I truly can't think of a more deserving arts program to support."
68 Ventures donated $25,000 in total with $10,000 of that being a part of its 68 Ventures Bowl charitable giving campaign. The other organizations for this charitable donation were Veterans Recovery Resources, the USS Alabama Battleship Foundation and the Equine Therapy Group. All recipient organizations will be recognized during the 68 Ventures Bowl game on Saturday, December 23 and spotlighted on all social media accounts.
The purpose of the donations was to continue the tradition of previous sponsors of the Mobile, Alabama Bowl game of giving to local organizations during bowl season. Previously, GMAC focused on reading and writing programs, Dollar General supported literacy groups and Lending Tree supported small businesses. Being a veteran-owned company, 68 Ventures chose to support local veterans’ groups and a Baldwin County arts program for young adults.
The 25th annual 68 Ventures Bowl will be played on Saturday, December 23, 2023, at Hancock Whitney Stadium.
