Baltimore Orioles Reach to Host 8th Annual Birdland Golf Classic in Lakewood Ranch

(Sarasota, FL) On Tuesday, February 13, the Baltimore Orioles will hold the Eighth Annual OriolesREACH Birdland Golf Classic at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club in Lakewood Ranch, FL. to benefit the Miracle League of Manasota, an organization dedicated to providing an opportunity for every person to play baseball, regardless of their ability. Registration is now open for golfers and corporate partners.

The event begins with registration and lunch at 11:00 a.m., with a shotgun start set for 1:00 p.m. The classic will feature a silent auction and the chance to play a round with current and former Orioles players and coaches. Following the event, the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club will host a dinner for participating golfers, as well as Orioles players and coaches.

“The Orioles have hosted the Classic since 2011 to raise funds and awareness for the Miracle League of Manasota – an organization which makes it possible for those challenged by disability to enjoy the excitement of our national pastime,” said David Rovine, Vice President, Orioles-Sarasota.

Several levels of participation are available for corporate partners, including MVP Sponsor packages which consist of recognition as a presenting sponsor, a foursome with the opportunity to select your Orioles playing partner, four infield box seats to a 2018 Orioles Spring Training game, and more. Since its inception, the Birdland Golf Classic has raised more than $240,000 for the Miracle League of Manasota.

For the 14,000 school-aged children and countless adults with disabilities in Sarasota and Manatee counties, the Miracle League of Manasota raised funds to build a synthetically-surfaced baseball field at a location that serves participants from both counties. Sarasota County committed $500,000 to building the field, with the Baltimore Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates each contributing $75,000. Located at Longwood Park north of University Parkway in Sarasota, the field opened in March 2012. Since then, more than 600 players have participated in the league’s 12 seasons.

“The Orioles’ support through the Birdland Golf Classic allows the Miracle League of Manasota to continue providing a team experience for children and adults who would otherwise be unable to participate,” said Max Levine, a Miracle League Board Member and Birdland Golf Tournament Chairman. “The Orioles embraced our organization when we were just a dream, and we are grateful for the ballclub’s ongoing commitment.”

For registration and additional information, visit https://birdeasepro.com/birdlandclassic or contact the Miracle League of Manasota at (941) 225-2966 or info@miracleleaguemanasota.org. The registration deadline is Friday, January 26, and the event is limited to the first 84 golfers.

Baltimore Orioles Team Up With Mayors’ Feed The Hungry Program To Fight Hunger in Sarasota

(Sarasota, FL) The Baltimore Orioles and the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program are teaming up again this year to collect and distribute food to help people in need in Sarasota. The Orioles will collect non-perishable food items at Ed Smith Stadium beginning on Monday, November 6, and will host the charity’s Thanksgiving Sorting Day at the ballpark on Friday, November 17.

Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at Ed Smith Stadium, located at 2700 12th Street, on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The collection station is located inside Café 54 on Euclid Avenue. The stadium will be closed on Friday, November 10, in observance of Veterans Day.

Additionally, volunteers are needed to sort food collected from locations throughout the community on Friday, November 17. Sorting will take place in the ballpark’s East Lot between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Volunteers do not need to sign up in advance.

“Partnering with the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program has become an important tradition for our organization, which has a long-standing commitment to fighting hunger, not just locally in Sarasota but also regionally throughout the Mid-Atlantic and internationally through a variety of partnerships,” said David Rovine, Vice President, Orioles-Sarasota. “We encourage local residents to participate in this important program by bringing non-perishable food items to Ed Smith Stadium and by volunteering to help sort donations. Together, we can help improve the lives of families in need throughout the Sarasota area.”

The Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program is a nonprofit organization that has collected and distributed more than 200 tons of food and more than $3.5 million in food gift cards given to the hungry in Sarasota and Manatee counties since 1987. The organization’s Thanksgiving food drive collects more than 46 tons of non-perishable food items annually. Food is distributed through charitable groups, religious institutions, and service agencies. Mayors’ Feed the Hungry also uses cash donations to distribute food gift cards.

“Mayors’ Feed the Hungry is thrilled to team up with the Orioles again this year,” said Joel Swallow, chair of the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry program. “The Orioles very graciously open their Sarasota home to host our annual food drive, demonstrating their commitment to giving back to the community.”
The program is endorsed by the mayors of Sarasota, Bradenton, Palmetto, Venice, Longboat Key, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria, and North Port, as well as the chairs of the Sarasota County and Manatee County Commissions. More information can be found at www.mayorsfeedthehungry.org.
