TORONTO -- The Blue Jays will celebrate the charitable achievements of the Jays Care Foundation for its efforts in 2012 on Wednesday.

Last year the Jays Care Foundation invested more than $1.9 million in Canadian communities, impacting more than 23,000 children and youth across Canada.

To commemorate this achievement, the Jays 2012 community partners will be honoured during Grants Night in the Jays Care Community Clubhouse at Rogers Centre on Wednesday when the Blue Jays host the White Sox.

Allan Fabrykant, Youth Assisting Youth mentee, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game, and a $1.9 million cheque will be present to Jays Care's 2012 community partners.

Jays Care Foundation Executive Director Rob Drynan, and members of the Jays Care Board of Directors will be on hand for the cheque presentation, photo opportunities, and to field questions for Jays Care's partnerships.
