200 Club, Savannah Bananas to Host 'Red, White & Blue Night' June 2nd

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

The Two Hundred Club of the Coastal Empire is teaming up with the Savannah Bananas for a second year to host Red, White and Blue Night beginning at 5 p.m. Friday, June 2 at Grayson Stadium, 1401 E. Victory Dr.

The Two Hundred Club developed the “Red, White and Blue” fundraising campaign because those colors represent the three services – fire, EMS and law enforcement –  that the non-profit organization supports with significant financial assistance when a family loses a loved one in the line of duty. That support includes a fully paid-for college education for surviving family members.

The day of baseball will begin with a game between Coastal Empire law enforcement officers vs. fire department and EMS personnel at 5 p.m. prior to the Savannah Bananas game against the Lexington County Blowfish at 7 p.m. There will be fun games and activities, plus the first pitch will be thrown by a 200 Club family member. A 200 Club memorial of fallen first responders and first responder equipment will be on display. The evening will conclude with a firework display.

Tickets are priced at $15 per person and include game admission, unlimited chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, dessert, water and soda. Tickets must be purchased through the 200 Club.

The Savannah Bananas organization is hosting a series of fundraising events this summer to support local non-profits. The June 2nd Red, White and Blue Night was planned as an opportunity for the 200 Club to raise awareness and funds from ticket sales and a Family Beach Package raffle.

“We are so honored and excited to be selected by the Savannah Bananas again this season as one of their chosen charities,” 200 Club President Mark Dana said. “Not only will the funds raised from this event help our organization in assisting those who protect us but this will also be an evening of great family fun for everyone in attendance.”
