Marlins to aid Hurricane Charley victims




The Florida Marlins will begin Hurricane Charley relief efforts with the team's August 24 game against the San Francisco Giants. The organization will be collecting relief items at all Pro Player Stadium gates during the Marlins six-game homestand from August 24 through August 29. Along with the collection relief, the Marlins will sponsor an on-line auction of Marlins memorabilia during the homestand. All funds raised from the auction will benefit the relief efforts.


The Marlins Mermaids, Marlins wives and volunteers from the American Red Cross will be on hand each game during the homestand to collect relief items from South Florida fans. Fans are asked to bring the following items for donation: sealed bottled water, coolers, clothing, first aid-kits, camp stoves, trash bags, diapers, blankets, ropes, gloves, duct tape, batteries, transistor radios and extension cords. Fans can also make monetary donations at each game. Monetary donations will be collected at all Pro Player Stadium gates during the homestand by the American Red Cross.


From August 24 through August 29, Marlins fans can also aid the hurricane victims while bidding on Marlins memorabilia at www.floridamarlins.com. From Tuesday through Sunday, the Marlins will feature a single auction item for each of the six games. See www.floridamarlins.com for all the details and auction times.


Donations for relief victims will also be accepted today from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm at Gate 3 of Pro Player Stadium with monetary donations accepted at the Gate G ticket windows. On Saturday fans can make donations at each gate of Pro Player Stadium prior to the Miami Dolphins preseason game. Gates will open at 5:30 pm on Saturday. Publix, a Marlins corporate partner, is also joining to aid in the relief efforts by collecting and distributing goods and supplies to relief agencies.
