Ratliff Named to Fisher Cats Foundation Board

The Fisher Cats Foundation, the charitable arm of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, has added Keene State College Athletic Director John Ratliff to its board of directors. Ratliff joins a Foundation that has surpassed $3 million in giving and recently saw its marquee event soar past $1 million raised for charity.

“We are excited to have John join us on the Fisher Cats Foundation Board of Directors,” said Fisher Cats owner and Foundation Board Chairman Art Solomon. “He shares a belief in the core principles that make up our Foundation, and he brings a vast knowledge of the people and places in Keene and the entire Monadnock region. His ideas and enthusiasm will help us continue to make an impact on the people and towns in his community.”

“The Fisher Cats Foundation has done so much outstanding work across our state, and I am excited to join in the mission,” Ratliff said. “The Foundation places a huge emphasis on education, something that has driven me throughout my administrative career. I look forward to working with my fellow board members to continue the great programs in place while adding new ideas to expand our impact in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.”

Ratliff joins a Foundation that is wrapping up a banner year in 2013. In June, the Foundation held its first charitable golf tournament, and it recently celebrated the sold-out 2013 Granite State Baseball Dinner on Nov. 23. That event raised more than $163,000 for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the Ted Williams Museum, and the Fisher Cats Foundation, and surpassed $1 million in giving since 2007. The proceeds will support the Foundation’s overall work, but specifically its scholarship program, which awards $30,000 to twelve graduating high school seniors each spring.
