The all American past time paired up with an all American holiday to support our Siouxland Service Members.
We want to thank Thrivent Financial for raising $30,000 over the last four years for our Military families, Veterans and Service Members! Each year Thrivent gives away over 1500 tickets to Military families and Thrivent members for the July 3rd Explorer’s game with fireworks, provides a catered tailgate and raises money for our Troops.They also help collect donations from the crowd at the game and throw out prizes between innings.
“I think that we don’t support our local Soldiers enough,” said Pam Bales of Thrivent Financial. “We hear everything that’s going on in the world and I think we kind of forget what’s happening right here and that’s what our company is all about, supporting the local community.”
The money raised at Tuesday’s game will go to Support Siouxland Soldiers’ Fallen and Injured Service Member Fund and help create the care packages that S.A.L.U.T.E. sends out to our deployed Soldiers.
The evening down at Lewis And Clark Stadium was capped off with fireworks to make the patriotic evening complete.
After crowd donations, Thrivent Financial presented a check on the field for more than $8,700 to Support Siouxland Soldiers and S.A.L.U.T.E.
