Wednesday July 21st the Drive will host its annual SYNNEX Share the Magic event at the ballpark – one of the most emotional & inspiring events of every Drive season with first pitch set for 7pm. Share the Magic is an annual fundraising initiative created by SYNNEX Corporation that provides much-needed funding for Upstate children facing incredible challenges such as life-threatening illnesses, abuse, neglect, or developmental delays. Join us at the game as proceeds from the Drive’s Share the Magic event, as is the case every season, will be directed back to the Share the Magic charities to help children all across our community.
