Carolina Strong Relief Fund

Donation protected
In the wake of Hurricane Florence that hit and devastated parts of South Carolina and much of North Carolina over the past week, thirteen Minor League Baseball teams in the two states are coming together to support and raise money for those victims in their states. The Asheville Tourists, Burlington Royals, Carolina Mudcats, Charleston RiverDogs, Charlotte Knights, Columbia Fireflies, Down East Wood Ducks, Durham Bulls, Greensboro Grasshoppers, Hickory Crawdads, Kannapolis Intimidators, Myrtle Beach Pelicans and Winston-Salem Dash announced today that they have created a joint GoFundMe page, raising funds for branches of the American Red Cross in affected areas of North Carolina and South Carolina.

The thirteen-­‐‑team dual state alliance will work together to maximize fundraising efforts across the state, utilizing the hashtag: #CarolinaStrong. 

Both states have received unprecedented rainfall and flooding from a tropical cyclone, and hundreds of miles of roads were closed in each state.  

“We’ve seen time and again that the residents of North and South Carolina are strong and resilient.  In difficult times we stand by one another and lift up those in need.  This time won’t be any different,” said the General Managers of the 13 MiLB teams in a joint statement.  “Our teams are an integral part of the fabric of the community within our respective cities across North and South Carolina.  While most days we operate as separate organizations, today we band together to support the citizens of these two great states.”

All funds raised through this campaign will be donated to the American Red Cross in affected areas of North Carolina and South Carolina.
