70 Sandy Ovations presented by Joe Leone's
The BlueClaws and Joe Leone's are out to help Restore The Shore and honor those that contributed to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts with the "70 Sandy Ovations" program presented by Joe Leone's.
At all 70 home games in 2013, the BlueClaws will honor one company, individual, or charitable organization that contributed to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Organizations will be randomly selected among those that apply or are nominated by others.
Restore The Shore Fridays and T-Shirt Sales
