HTC Presents Make a Splash Monday at the Pelicans April 1, 2013

Posted by HTC in Uncategorized.

HTC sponsors Monday home games at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans to benefit the “Backpack Buddies” program.

HTC is connecting with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans this season as the presenting sponsor of the “Make a Splash Mondays” and aiding the “Backpack Buddies” program in Horry County. The company is encouraging the community to bring non-perishable food items to the 11 Monday home games to help stock the “Backpack Buddies” food bank for the 2013-14 school year.

The first “Make a Splash Monday” is scheduled for April 15. Those that donate a non-perishable food item will receive half-price admissions as well as complimentary autographed baseball cards from Pelicans players. The cards will feature the players doing work in the community. Items such as Ramen noodles, pop tarts, individual servings of pudding, individual servings of apple sauce, fruit cups, beanie weenies, Vienna sausage, cereal, raviolis (pop top cans), chicken noodle soup (pop top cans) will be accepted as donations.

“HTC connects with the Pelicans each year, and we are looking forward to another successful season for the players and the fans,” said Tom Vitt, director of marketing at HTC. “HTC is proud to support the team and the community through a worthy cause such as the Backpack Buddies program. We encourage the fans to join us in this effort to provide the basic needs for school children in our area.”

The Pelicans have adopted the “Backpack Buddies” program as the primary charitable partner of “Make a Splash Mondays.” “Backpack Buddies” is part of the Help 4 Kids 501c3 and has been inexistence since 1989 to provide basic necessities to the children of the working poor in Horry County. The program provides food, books, clothing and school supplies to impoverished children so they have the tools to succeed outside of school hours. “Make a Splash Mondays” enables fans to “connect with the community” and is supported all season long by HTC.
