|AIG RENEWS HOMERS FOR KIDS PROGRAM WITH NEW YORK METS FOR 2007 SEASON|
Program to Support Youth Charities in Queens
NEW YORK----April 5, 2007--American International Group, Inc. (AIG) today announced the renewal of the AIG Homers for Kids program with the New York Mets for the 2007 season. The AIG Homers for Kids program benefits a number of Queens-based youth charities. For every home run the New York Mets hit at Shea Stadium in 2007, AIG will donate $250 to a designated youth charity.
AIG will select a new charity for each of the Mets' 26 home series. In addition to providing $250 for each Mets home run hit at Shea Stadium, AIG will contribute $1,000 to the designated charity each time the Mets hit a grand slam in their home ballpark. A minimum donation of $250 will be provided if no home runs are hit during a home series. Web links to the selected charities' home pages will be posted on the AIG Homers for Kids Web site (http://www.aig.com/homersforkids) so visitors can learn more about these groups and lend their support to the organizations.
During the Mets' 2006 and 2005 seasons, AIG contributed $29,000 and $21,750 respectively to various youth charities in the metropolitan New York area through the Homers for Kids Program.
"AIG is very proud to enter into our third season of the AIG Homers for Kids program with the New York Mets," said Martin Sullivan, AIG President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased to continue supporting worthwhile youth charities through the AIG Homers for Kids program while celebrating America's favorite pastime."
