MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA (FEBRUARY 6, 2014) - After a week and no word from Russell Wilson, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans are upping the ante. For a one game appearance in 2014, the Pelicans are doubling their previous offer, a $10,000 charitable donation to the organization of Wilson's choice. In addition to the $20,000, the Pelicans have partnered with businesses throughout the community to provide a complimentary vacation for Wilson and his wife.
A number of the Pelicans corporate partners have offered to pitch in to complete the vacation package and ensure Wilson and his wife Ashton enjoy their visit to the Grand Strand. The Pelicans Vacation includes:
- Accommodations at North Beach Plantation courtesy of www.myrtlebeachhotels.com
- Golf courtesy of www.myrtlebeachgolf.com
- Attractions and entertainment courtesy of www.visitmyrtlebeach.com
- Meals courtesy of www.grandstrandrestaurants.com
- Usage of a vehicle from www.sparkstoyota.com or www.beachford.net
Pelicans General Manager, Andy Milovich says "We recognize that Russell's commitment to the Seahawks means he'll likely never play a game, but he has an open invitation to TicketReturn.Com Field any time." The team's plans would be to have Russell spend a few minutes addressing kids in a pre-game clinic and participate in the team's pre-game show via a Question and Answer session with Pelicans Managing Partner Chuck Greenberg. "He's a remarkable young man and I hope we have an opportunity to reward him and his charity for a remarkable season," said Milovich. "He's welcome to choose a date that fits his schedule, but we're eyeing the week of April 14th to give him a chance to join the festivities during Monday After the Masters."
If the upgraded charitable donation and free vacation are still not enough, Milovich continues to show his dedication to bringing Wilson to TicketReturn.com Field in part two of the We Want Russell video saga. Fans are again asked to join in the effort by sharing the video on social media and include #wewantwilson.
