This was the second honorary award Megan was presented with from the Kids With A Heart Organization, for her volunteer work by finding ways to give back to her community and to others when ever possible. Ms. Sandra Holzworth, public relations for Tri-County Mall said, "Megan was honored for her efforts in 2007 and I was so glad to see her continued contributions. She is a spokesperson for the Cincy Cured Foundation, she volunteers as a model for the CARA Charties fashion show, she volunteers her time at hospitals, and participates in fundraisers for SISCA and Breast Cancer Awareness organizations. She was a volunteer for the 25th anniversary of Operation Santa Schnauzer at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and also volunteered her time for the Project Linus, a non profit organization that provides blankets to children that are seriously ill, traumatized, or other wise in need of blankets in hospitals across the nation. Megan puts a considerable effort to make a difference in other people's lives and we are happy to announce her as one of our Kids With A Heart representatives."
Megan and her father, Bill were greeted when they arrived at the park and escorted to the credential office where they received their passes to get onto the field. After a quick briefing of what would take place and some history provided about the ball park, they were escorted to the field to watch the teams warm up.
Megan was then introduced to the Cincinnati Reds head coach, Dusty Baker. She was able to meet and spend time with some of the players. After the opening ceremony and National Anthem, Megan was announced with a review of her accomplishments. Megan then received a welcoming cheer from the crowd. Head coach, Dusty Baker and Megan then headed towards the plate with the score card. They meet with head coach Cooper of the Houston Astros and the officials to receive instruction and rules for the game.
Megan said, "This was an awesome experience for my dad and I. I've always been a huge Cincinnati Reds fan and it was great to attend the game much less, get the opportunity to be on the field. Being able to interact with the players and officials and participating in the game's activities was truly an honor. My family and I had a blast and I would like to thank the Cincinnati Reds and Zach Bonkowski for allowing me to be part of it and the players and officials for being so nice and interested in my career. It's something I will always remember."
