From the release:

During the Charleston RiverDogs’ current five-game homestand, Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park will serve as an official drop-off point for non-perishable items to help benefit the Cedar Rapids Flood Relief Fund in the mass flooding that has occurred in the Midwest.

Fans who enter The Joe can offer their items at the GEICO Guest Services Booth in the park’s concourse area, which will be air-shipped to the flood-stricken areas on Monday, June 30.

The effort is being spearheaded by Lowcountry native Michael Kasey, whose son, Travis, lives in Cedar Rapids.  Michael Kasey currently serves as a staff member at AJ’s Sports Bar & Grill on James Island.

All items collected at The Joe during this homestand will then be taken to AJ’s as part of the mass shipment that will be sent to Cedar Rapids. Fans who wish to take their donations directly to AJ’s may do so as well.

If there are questions concerning the event or if you would like to make a donation, please contact Michael Kasey at (843) 270-1136, or via e-mail at
