Benefit Second Harvest and Take In a Ballgame. Also, Is Winston Better Than Greensboro?

The Triad Apartment Association (my employer) is hosting a food drive to benefit Second Harvest and one aspect of it is that we're having a competition between the Winston-Salem Dash and the Greensboro Grasshoppers to see which team/city can raise the most food for one game.  The Dash game is next Monday (July 12) and the Grasshopper game is next Wednesday (July 14).  We have slightly different arrangements for each game but the basics are that we're encouraging folks to bring food or financial donations and then stick around to enjoy the ballgame.  Here are the details:

Winston-Salem Dash, July 12

Bring food or financial donations to our table by the entrance and you'll get a voucher for a free Dash baseball cap.  Your donations will be counted towards the Winston-Salem total.

Greensboro Grasshoppers, July 14

You can bring food and financial donations to our table, and on top of that if you buy your ticket to the game from us $2 of the ticket will go to Second Harvest.  There will also be prize giveaways throughout the evening.  Your donations will be counted towards the Greensboro total.

Last year our Food Drive raised almost 210,000 cans of food and we're determined to beat that this year.  I hope to see many of you on either Monday or Wednesday!

Final note: I'd like to personally thank Mayor Joines, Mayor Knight, WXII, The Dash and The Grasshoppers for partnering with us and Second Harvest to help feed the hungry in the Triad.  Here's the commercial we all collaborated on the promote the event:
