The Bowie Baysox have partnered with their local business community to "Strike Out Hunger" in an attempt to raise both money and supplies for local food banks in Prince George's and Anne Arundel Counties. Baysox fans coming to Saturday, May 20th's game against Binghamton at 6:35 p.m. can be a part of the effort.
"We want to find new ways to use our product as a way to benefit those that are in need in our community" Director of Broadcasting Adam Pohl said. "A huge thank you to all in our business community who have come together to benefit our local food banks through Baysox Baseball."
Fans can purchase a suite ticket for $50 which includes an All-You-Can-Eat All-American Buffet and tickets in our Potomac Room for the game and following fireworks show. To purchase call Emily Reder at 301-464-4890 or online at firstname.lastname@example.org. Partial proceeds from suite ticket will benefit local food banks.
You can also donate in the form of food. Bring a canned food donation to the Strike Out Hunger Table outside the stadium on the front pad and receive a FREE Baysox promotional item.
"It's an honor to be a part of local businesses teaming with the Baysox to help our local food banks," Suzanne Frost of B&P Environmental said. "There is a major need to help our banks in the summer and we hope to bring some help their way."
There will also be a stadium-wide raffle that fans can participate in that will also raise funds. All proceeds from the raffle will go to local food banks.
All monies and canned food donations will go to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank (Prince George's County) and the Maryland Food Bank (Anne Arundel County).
The Baysox are at home this upcoming weekend with fireworks following games on Friday, May 19th and Saturday, May 20th. For tickets, contact the Baysox at 301-805-6000 or purchase online at baysox.com.
