Portland, Maine- The Portland Sea Dogs, in partnership with Maine's Credit Unions, will hold their 19th annual Food Drive which will run from Monday, January 14th through Friday, February 1st. All the collected food items will be donated to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.
As in the past, this year's food drive will be "Buy One, Bring One, Get One." For every ticket purchased and every donated food item you bring, you will receive a free Sea Dogs ticket to the same game. For example, if you buy three tickets to the June 22nd game and bring in three food items, you will receive three additional complimentary tickets of equal or lesser value to the June 22nd game. The offer is good for Box Seats, Reserved, General Admission, and Pavilion seating (excluding All-You-Can-Eat tickets); subject to availability.
Fans may take advantage of this offer by bringing their non-perishable food items to the Hadlock Field Box Office. The Sea Dogs Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
"Raising both funds and awareness about hunger is an important part of why Maine's credit unions are so committed to the cause of ending hunger in Maine," said Todd Mason, President of the Maine CU League. "Through our partnership with the Sea Dogs, we are once again focusing attention on this significant issue in Maine. Since 1990, Maine's credit unions have raised more close to $9 million to help end hunger in Maine, however, much more work remains to be done not only in terms of collecting food and money but getting it to the people who need it most. We continue to look for opportunities to make a difference and look forward to working with the Sea Dogs once again."
Each year the Sea Dogs have been able to donate hundreds of food items to the Good Shepherd Food Bank thanks to the generosity of Sea Dogs' fans.
The Sea Dogs open the 2019 season on Thursday, April 4th at 6:00 PM at Hadlock Field against the Reading Fightin Phils.
