2nd Annual Tickets For Turkey Promotion

SIOUX CITY, IA. - The Sioux City Explorers are kicking off their 20th Season by continuing their dedication to the Siouxland community with the Season of Giving campaign.

In 2011, the Sioux City Explorers created the Season of Giving and throughout the year partnered with different area organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland, Children’s Miracle Network, Challenger Little League, Sioux City Public Library, South Sioux City Public Library, Ponca Public Library, Hats on for Cancer campaign started by Tayvin Schmoll and LifeServe Blood Center to name a few. In 2012, the entire Explorers organization, from the front office staff to the players and coaches, will continue to give back to the community that has allowed them to continue their dream of working in and playing professional baseball.

Throughout the season, the goal of the organization will be to inspire those we meet to follow their dreams and also inspire the Siouxland community to give back to others. The Explorers are kicking off the 2012 Season of Giving campaign with the 2nd Annual Tickets for Turkey promotion.

For every new 2012 Sioux City Explorers ticket package fans purchase, the X’s will donate a turkey to the local Goodwill Industries Wall Street Mission and The Salvation Army for distribution to families in need during the holiday season. Last year the X’s, along with the support of the Siouxland community, were able to provide turkeys to help feed over 400 people during the holiday season.

"The Salvation Army is very grateful that the X's will repeat their Tickets for Turkey promotion again this winter”, The Salvation Army Corps officer Capt. Von R. Vandiver said. “In the midst of winter, it is great to think about being at Lewis and Clark Park next summer to watch the Explorers play exciting baseball, and with the Tickets for Turkey promotion, folks can also help those in need this Christmas - that is a home run on our scoreboard. I want to encourage X's fan's to throw a strike at hunger, by taking advantage of the Explorer's 2nd annual Ticket for Turkey promotion.”

"The 2012 season is a big year for our organization as we celebrate our 20th season in Siouxland and this is a great way to begin the celebration by having the opportunity to help members of our community in need during the holiday season,” stated Explorers General Manager, Shane Tritz.

“In a time of giving, we are thrilled to work with an organization like the Sioux City Explorers. The Tickets for Turkeys promotion will help feed a targeted group within the Goodwill family.” comments Goodwill Industries Wall Street Mission Vice President of Development, Sonny Kellen.
