MYRTLE BEACH. S.C. (WBTW)-Wednesday night the Myrtle Beach pelicans raised money to help the West Virginia flood victims. There was a silent auction, dunking booth and a 50/50 raffle.
All proceeds go to the American Red Cross disaster relief program. Kristin Call, senior marketing director with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans said it was a great turnout since people here know what it’s like to be impacted by a flood.
“You know the reason we wanted to do West Virginia night initially, there’s a lot of transplants from the area. There are a lot of folks here that have friends and family back in West Virginia that have been affected and like you said, we do know what it means to be here and be flooded with the recent flooding last fall. Anytime you can pay that back and help someone else out, it’s a good thing.”
A portion of ticket sales from Wednesday’s packed game will also go to benefit flood victims.
