Pink in the Park with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans is back!  Get ready to paint the park pink on August 3rd at 6:05. Wear your pink swag & get ready for some fun! A portion of all of the tickets will be donated to cancer research.

Tickets for our Pink in the Park can be purchased for $11 at www.pinkpelicans.net.  NO money is donated from tickets bought straight from the box office so you have to click above.

They are also supporting the Matthew Bellamy Project so be sure to check out their table at the event.

The organizers have lots of fun planned for the night including entertainment, a silent auction autographed Pelicans swag, 50/50 & fireworks. Also, the kids from our group will get to do the on field activities during the game.

The group is also looking for sponsors for tickets that they can donate to local families. You or your business can sponsor tickets at www.pinkpelicans.net. The goal is to have 200 tickets donated.
