The Charlotte Knights, in partnership with T-Mobile – the official sponsor of its recent “Pumpkin Patch at Truist Field” event – donated 250 pumpkins to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte.
Homer the Dragon, along with members of the Charlotte Knights front office staff, brought the pumpkin patch to the kids, stopping by the Belmont Avenue Club to paint pumpkins, dance, and have a good time.
The Charlotte Knights, following the forced cancellation of the 2020 baseball season, have been very creative in a difficult environment. The team has planned numerous successful events, opening up its Truist Field for unique – and safe – opportunities ranging from movie nights to the recent Pumpkin Patch event. One thing that has always been consistent is the team’s commitment to giving back to the community.
“This is just one of the many things we hope to be able to do to bring some sense of normalcy into their lives when everyone has been upside down for the last several months,” said Charlotte Knights General Manager Dan Rajkowski.
The ups and downs of navigating virtual learning make this a difficult time for youth in our community. But, the pumpkin painting event at the Club was an opportunity to have a little fun after the work was done.
The Boys & Girls Clubs are committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure kids have a great future – and sometimes that means reminding kids that it’s okay to let loose and experience the joy of being a kid. And, that’s even easier to do when Homer the Dragon is around to show you how!
Thank you to the Knights, and T-Mobile, for making this event possible.
