Ziff Law Firm seeks Hometown Heroes to honor

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 | Categories:



The Ziff Law Firm of Elmira is teaming up with the Elmira Pioneers for the fifth summer in a row to honor a Hometown Hero of the Game for each Pioneers home game. Twin Tiers residents may nominate anyone who gives back to their community through their work, actions or volunteer efforts.


Those selected by the Ziff Law Firm as Hometown Heroes – and up to seven of their family members and friends – will be guests of the law firm at a Pioneers game at Dunn Field, where they will be seated in a specially designated box. The Hometown Hero will be recognized during the game by the public-address announcer. More than 100 people have been honored since the program began during the 2012 season.

The Elmira Pioneers play in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League, a summer league with 13 teams from across New York state. The Pioneers’ first home game is at 7:05 p.m. June 4 against the Jamestown Jammers. The Pioneers have 28 regular-season home games.


The Ziff Law Firm looks forward to turning the spotlight on people making a difference in our community, said attorney Adam Gee of the Ziff Law Firm.


“Service to your community, whether through one’s occupation or volunteer work, is as American as baseball and apple pie, so we can’t imagine a better way to thank our Hometown Heroes,” Gee said. “The Ziff Law Firm feels privileged to sponsor this program and looks forward to meeting our heroes and sharing their stories.”


Hometown Heroes is a fan favorite at every home game, said Don Lewis, who owns the Pioneers with Robbie Nichols. “We are very excited to team up with the Ziff Law Firm again this year to honor outstanding local residents,” Lewis said. “We hope our Heroes inspire other residents to give back to their communities as well.”
