Team Circling For Success and the Restoration of CPLC Community Center
The Arizona Diamondbacks have a long-standing tradition of supporting charitable causes throughout the community. From this proud tradition, the D-Backs Give Back League was created.
Team Circling for Success, one of the D-Backs Give Back League’s teams, invested upwards of $250,000 to revive the Chicanos Por La Causa Community Center. View the following video, to see all of the hard work that it took to complete this restoration:
