LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Las Vegas Aviators baseball team says it is joining MiLB CommUNITY First, a new national initiative developed by Minor League Baseball in conjunction with Feeding America, to raise funds for local food banks and to honor individuals risking their lives on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aviators fans are encouraged to visit milb.com through May 31 to donate.
Once on the site, fans can choose their donation amount and the Las Vegas Aviators as the recipient of their donation to direct funds to the Las Vegas community.
For every $10 donated, the Aviators will donate one ticket to a future home game this season or in 2021 to a local hero of the pandemic.
In response, contributions from Aviators fans and Minor League Baseball will help ensure families and individuals across the country most impacted by the pandemic are fed and cared for during these uncertain times.
To join the national campaign, donate and select Las Vegas Aviators at milb.com and use #MiLBCommUNITYFirst on social media to show your support.
