Portland, Maine- The Portland Sea Dogs, in partnership with Maine's Credit Unions, will hold their 18th annual Food Drive which will run from Tuesday, January 9th through Friday, February 2nd. 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 18th game and bring in three food items, you will receive three additional complimentary tickets of equal or lesser value to the June 18th 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 we are so committed to the cause of ending hunger in Maine. 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 than $7.2 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," said Todd Mason, President of the Maine CU League."
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 2018 season on Thursday, April 5th in Binghamton, New York. The home opener is scheduled for Friday, April 13th at 6:00 PM against the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
