The Missoula PaddleHeads want to help generate community support to help those affected by the tragic wildfires in Australia. On Wednesday, in partnership with other members of the Pioneer League, they announced their “Help Support the Fire Efforts in Australia” campaign.
For every $10 donated to either the Australian Red Cross, the World Wildlife Foundation, or Country Fire Authority fans will receive one entry into a raffle with a chance to win phenomenal PaddleHeads & Osprey prizes, and VIP experiences. HOW TO ENTER: fans are asked to provide proof of donation by tagging the PaddleHeads on social media outlets, or sending direct messages. The raffle will run through Monday, January 13.
“As humans who share this earth, I feel as though it’s our duty to step up to the plate in times of need,” said PaddleHeads Director of Marketing Taylor Rush. “The sheer mass of people, animals, and nature that have been negatively affected by these fires is gut wrenching. Large or small, any level of contributions for this effort that we can help generate will help those affected…bottom line, it is the right thing to do.”
For fans who participate, raffle prizes include:
- Game Worn Osprey Jersey
- 2019 Team Autographed Baseball
- Game Used Bat From Missoula Alum Liover Peguero (D-Backs #3 SS Prospect)
- Touki Toussiant Autographed Baseball (Missoula Alum & Atlanta Braves SP)
