Pelicans partner with 'Backpack Buddies'

'Make a Splash Monday' presented by HTC
March 25, 2013

Every Monday Pelicans home game will be a "Make a Splash Monday" at TicketReturn.Com Field. "Make a Splash Monday" enables fans to "connect with your community" and it is presented all season long by HTC.

The Pelicans have adopted the "Backpack Buddies" program as the primary charitable partner of "Make a Splash Mondays." "Backpack Buddies" provides food, books, clothing and school supplies to impoverished children so they have the tools to succeed outside of school hours.

Each "Make a Splash Monday," fans who donate an item listed on the "Backpack Buddies" donation list will receive half-price admission along with a complimentary autographed baseball card from a Pelicans player that features him doing work in the community. 

"Backpack Buddies" is part of the Help 4 Kids 501c3 and has been in existence since 1989 to provide basic necessities to the children of the working poor in Horry County.


The following items will be accepted as donations:

Ramen Noodles

Pop Tarts

Individual servings of pudding

Individual servings of apple sauce

Fruit Cups

Beenie Weenies

Vienna Sausage


Raviolis (Pop Top Cans)

Chicken Noodle Soup (Pop Top Cans)
