SPEAKER: Kandi Nieto President of San Diego Madres
The Madres were established in 1972 and back then the Padres players were required to attend the Madres meetings but with the onset of player agents that has become a thing of the past. The Madres support baseball, women’s softball and soccer and challenge leagues. Their mission is funded via fund raisers and they typically raise $20-$30K/year. They have many activities including luncheons and meet ‘n greets with a Padre player. Membership is currently at 140. To learn more or join go to SDMadres.org .
