PORTLAND — The Portland Sea Dogs, in partnership with Maine’s Credit Unions, will hold their 17th annual Food Drive which began Monday and runs through Feb. 3.

All the collected food items will be donated to the Good Shepherd Food Bank.

As in the past, this year’s food drive will be “Buy One, Bring One, Get One.” For every ticket purchased and every donated food item you bring, you will receive a free Sea Dogs ticket to the same game. For example, if you buy three tickets to the June 18th game and bring in three food items, you will receive three additional complimentary tickets of equal or lesser value to the June 18th game. The offer is good for Box Seats, Reserved, General Admission, and Pavilion seating; subject to availability.

Fans may take advantage of this offer by bringing their non-perishable food items to the Hadlock Field Box Office. The Sea Dogs Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Sea Dogs open the 2017 season on April 6 at 6 p.m. at Hadlock Field against the Reading Fightin Phils. Tickets for all 2017 home games are now on sale and can be ordered by calling the Sea Dogs ticket office at 207-879-9500 or online at www.seadogs.com.
