LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - For the second straight season, the Gwinnett Braves have announced the "Christmas in July" promotion at Coolray Field, helping support families and children in need in Gwinnett and surrounding counties. In association with local charities, the G-Braves will raise funds to allow underprivileged youth and their families to attend "Christmas in July Day" on Sunday, July 20 against Durham.

The G-Braves are looking for businesses, groups and individuals to share in the holiday spirit and donate to the "Christmas in July" cause. For just $160, your organization can sponsor 20 underprivileged children and their families for the day. Sponsorship levels range from $160 to $1,600, with each level providing seats for the children and their families for the game. 

All "Christmas in July" partners will have their name or company name listed on GwinnettBraves.com, as well as the team's official Facebook and Twitter pages. Partners will also receive VIP seats to the game so that they can participate in the event. Partners donating in the top two sponsorship levels will receive a concourse table for the game.

In order to organize the attending families, donations must be received by July 12, 2014. For more information on the "Christmas in July" promotion, contact Alden Treadway at (678) 277-0350 or alden.treadway@braves.com.

The G-Braves are also teaming up with the Georgia Patriot Guard Riders to host a Toy Drive prior to the 2:05 PM game. All fans that bring a new, unused toy to the Coolray Field Ticket Office will receive two (2) Infield Box tickets for the price of one for that day's game (limit one redemption per person). All toys collected will go to the National Guard's Christmas Assistance program, serving the children of active-service military members.
