The Bowling Green Hot Rods, Class-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, today announced their Inaugural Charity Dinner and Auction to be hosted on Thursday February 21st. The event will take place at the Corvette Museum and feature special guest, Cincinnati Reds Hall of Famer and former NL MVP George Foster.
The dinner will also help raise funds and awareness for three area charities; Center for Courageous Kids, Playing for Mason, and 'Boys to Men' Program. "We are excited to be partnering with these three organizations and help them reach so many others with what they do in the community." Said Eric C. Leach, Hot Rods General Manager & COO. During the 2018 season the Hot Rods donated over $350,000 last year back into the South-Central Kentucky community and did over 1,700 hours of volunteerism. "Giving back is part of our staff culture and what we are all about. Each organization has a huge impact and that is why we chose them."
The night will feature a pre-dinner autograph session and meet and greet with George Foster, silent auction, dinner, speakers, and also a live auction where fans can bid on one of kind experiences and memorabilia. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be equally shared with all three of the selected charities. Full tables are for sale for $400 and include 8 tickets, dinner, early meet and greet with George Foster, and one autographed bat. Individual tickets are also on sale for $35 each. Both tickets may be purchased over the phone at 270-901-2121 or online at www.bghotrods.com. The dinner will start at 6:30 pm with the pre-dinner autograph times to be announced shortly.
