Crime Stoppers of Savannah-Chatham County will be holding their first fundraiser since the COVID-19 Pandemic by hosting a night with the Savannah Bananas. Tickets for the Saturday, July 11 game at Historic Grayson Stadium can be purchased online at bananas. isportstix.com/order/group/ CrimeStoppers. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit Crime Stoppers, a Savannah based non-profit that works to stop crime in our community.
“Crime Stoppers has been laying low throughout the course of the pandemic and as a result of cancelled meetings and events, our revenue has been greatly impacted,” said Crime Stoppers of Savannah-Chatham County Executive Director Larry Branson. “We are a non-profit and in order for us to continue serving the community, we have to raise money because our livelihood depends solely on donations. We are thankful that the Savannah Bananas partnered with us for this fundraiser because the money from this event will allow us to continue to fight crime in our community.”
Tickets are $18 and include general admission seating and all you can eat/drink hotdogs, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, popcorn, Byrd’s oatmeal cookies, sodas and water. Crime Stoppers is only selling 150 tickets and tickets and this popular event is selling out fast!
