GC Baseball, Kappa Delta to Host “Pack the Park in Green” Saturday

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – In an effort to help raise funds and awareness for Prevent Child Abuse America, the Georgia College baseball team and head coach Tom Carty are pleased to team up with Kappa Delta to host “Pack the Park in Green” Saturday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at John Kurtz Field.

As part of Kappa Delta’s Shamrock Week, the sorority will hold raffles for prizes to local businesses and other items as Kurtz Field will be all decked out in green. The Thunder Crew, Georgia College’s student spirit group, will also host a tailgate with free hot dogs and hamburgers, all levels of donation accepted to the great cause.

The proceeds of Saturday’s event will stay local, as the vast majority of profits will go straight toward Crescent House in Macon, Ga.

The event is free and open to the public, and sure to be great fun for all.
