GreenJackets partner with Golden Harvest

  • Wednesday, August 20, 2014

The Augusta GreenJackets will be partnering with the Golden Harvest Food Bank to host the Golden Harvest Food Bank Canned Food Drive as a part of its game on Friday at Lake Olmstead Stadium.

“Golden Harvest Food Bank is not only an important part of the community but a great organization,” said GreenJackets General Manager Tom Denlinger. “With our commitment to the community, we are excited to partner together on this night and have our fans help support the Golden Harvest Food Bank.”

Golden Harvest’s goal is to provide and serve quality food to people in need. Through the help of local community support, it is able to serve lunch every day in downtown Augusta at the Master’s Table Soup Kitchen. On Aug. 22, two GreenJackets players will be at the Master’s Table volunteering their time by serving food and speaking with members of the community from 11 a.m. to noon.

“It’s so encouraging to have strong community partners like the GreenJackets who are willing to cultivate our sports culture but also partner with us in taking action in feed the hungry,” said Travis McNeal, executive director at Golden Harvest Food Bank.

Golden Harvest is doing a ticket fundraiser as part of the night to help members of the CSRA community. Fans that bring canned food items to the game will receive a raffle ticket for “Enter to Win” giveaways. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. as the GreenJackets face the Lexington Legends. Gates open at 6 p.m. The first 1,000 fans will receive a golf umbrella courtesy of SRP Federal Credit Union. It’s also Golf Night with special themes and promotions. There will also be Launch-A-Ball, and postgame, kids can run the bases.

2014 marks the 26th consecutive season of professional baseball in Augusta. All GreenJackets ticket plans, including full, half, weekend, and custom plans are on sale now for the 2014 Season. For more information, including pricing and benefits, visit www.GreenJacketsBaseball.com
