MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (April 25, 2018) – In the wake of the fire at Windsor Green Apartments in Carolina Forest earlier this month, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans are raising funds for the displaced residents. The team is holding a ticket sales fundraiser in which fans can purchase a ticket to May 1 and 2 online at myrtlebeachpelicans.com/tickets using the promo code “WG”. $5.00 from every ticket purchased with that promo code will be donated to those affected by the fire. The team will also donate proceeds from the 50/50 raffle on those nights. Additionally, anyone wishing to make a donation to the affected residents can do so at the ballpark that evening. Donations are being accepted in the form of cash, gift cards and toiletries. It has been asked that no clothes be donated.
In addition to the fundraising elements, the team is offering a free ticket and meal to those affected by this tragedy on Tuesday, May 1, and Wednesday, May 2. To claim the free ticket and meal voucher, displaced residents simply need to stop by the Pelicans Box Office.
Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch on both nights. Other promotional offers include $2 tacos and tallboys until 8pm on Tuesday, and BOGO hot dogs on Wednesday. The 2018 season is the 20th season for the Pelicans franchise and fourth as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.
