November Program at JetBlue Park

November 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on November 14th from 5 to 7 p.m. at JetBlue Park located at 11500 Fenway South Drive in Fort Myers. (PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME – THE TOUR WILL BEGIN PROMPTLY AT 5:15 P.M.) Home of the Boston Red Sox’s 106-acre Spring Training and Player Development Complex, the program will kick off with a behind-the-scene tour of the main ballpark including a rare look inside the Major League Clubhouse and weight room. Attendees will then hear from Katie Haas, vice president of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox, about what it takes to oversee the year round activities, programs, community involvement and non-Red Sox game events held at the facility throughout the year.

In recognition of Veteran’s Day, Armando Hernandez, Florida program director for the Home Base Program will share the Club’s active role with Massachusetts General Hospital’s Home Base Program, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping service members, Veterans and their families heal from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.

Hernandez, born and raised in Southwest Florida, enlisted in the United States Marine Corps as an engineer from 2003-2007. During his enlistment, he deployed to Fallujah, Iraq in 2005 with Combat Logistics Battalion 8. After leaving the military Hernandez attended Florida Gulf Coast University where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in exercise science and currently serves as an adjunct professor for the university’s Department of Rehabilitation Sciences.

Active supporters of Leadership NEXT and proud of its alumni like Hernandez, the FGCU Alumni Association is the sponsor of November’s program.

Leadership NEXT is free to attend for members of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and $10 for future members.

Complimentary appetizers and a cash bar will be offered by Aramark on the Left Field Deck. Parking is available in a grass lot off Daniels Parkway. Guests should enter the ballpark on the west side through Gate B. All guests are encouraged to register in advance at
