D-backs & Paul Goldschmidt Announce Program to Benefit "Goldy's Fund 4 Kids"


PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) and first baseman Paul Goldschmidt have teamed up to launch a "Bleacher Creature" program that will raise money to benefit Phoenix Children's Hospital through Paul Goldschmidt's new fund, Goldy's Fund 4 Kids.

"It's just a natural fit," said Goldschmidt about the partnership. "My wife, Amy, and I have had the opportunity to volunteer over at Phoenix Children's Hospital and see a lot of the needs over there. It's a very worthy cause. There are a lot of families with kids there that can use the help, and with them being a partner of the D-backs, it was just a win-win for everyone. Plus, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation does so many great things in the community, so working with them means a great partner and a great opportunity. I'm just glad to be a small part of it and try to help out as much as I can."

The Bleacher Creature showcases Goldschmidt in the D-backs Home (White) Uniform and starting today, fans can purchase the Bleacher Creature plush doll for $44 (Goldschmidt's uniform number) at dbacks.com/goldyfund or at D-backs home games at Season Ticket Headquarters (Section 111). Sales from the Bleacher Creature will benefit Goldy's Fund 4 Kids, which works closely with Phoenix Children's Hospital. Paul and his wife Amy frequently visit patients and families at Phoenix Children's Hospital and are seeking to raise $100,000 to benefit PCH through the Bleacher Creature program and Goldy's Fund 4 Kids. Last year, a limited edition Goldschmidt print was sold during the annual FOX Sports Arizona broadcast auction and raised $100,000 for the hospital.
