[image-1]From now until 5 p.m. EST Thurs. Aug 21, you can participate in the Charleston RiverDogs online auction benefitting the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, a new downtown children’s hospital set to open in 2019 that will employ the best doctors and caregivers, with a goal of helping children heal in a safe, happy, and secure environment. The new hospital will have more beds, private, spacious rooms, and patient care units dedicated to specific diseases and treatments.

To bid, visit rileyparkevents.com — auction items include a Kiawah Island retreat, a Terrace Theater private showing, a Darius Rucker and Chris Campbell autographed guitar, and Yankees tickets and JetBlue flights.

For almost two decades, our beloved baseball team has made an effort to raise money — over $600,000, to be exact — for the MUSC Storm Eye Institute and the Chris Singleton Memorial Fund. Help the Dogs in their effort to support local charities, and be sure to check the auction listings regularly, as more items will be added throughout the month.  [content-2][content-1]
