AMARILLO, Texas – The Amarillo Sod Poodles are excited to announce the return of our 2023 programs aimed towards helping local non-profits and small businesses during the 2023 season. The club returns the Small Business Spotlight sponsored by Carpet Tech, the Charity Spotlight sponsored by Brick & Elm, along with the Launch-A-Ball Fundraiser sponsored by Barnes Jewelry.
All three programs are designed specifically to help hard-working, local small businesses and non-profit organizations raise awareness and funds to continue to provide their goods and services to the Texas Panhandle and surrounding areas.
Each organization that signs up for either our Small Business and Charity Spotlight, depending on their organization type, will be provided the following elements during any of the 69 Sod Poodles regular-season home games at no cost. Groups or individuals will receive a marketing table on the main concourse to showcase their organization, in-park recognition via a live public address announcement, and scoreboard recognition. Organizations can also appoint someone from their organization do a live on-air interview during the Sod Poodles Radio Broadcast to further promote their organization or small business. In addition, these programs come with a ceremonial first pitch and four tickets to the game for which the group or business owners will be recognized.
Sign-ups are on a first-come, first-served basis based on availability throughout the season. To sign up for our Small Business Spotlight, please fill out this form. Our Charity Spotlight form can be found HERE.
The Sod Poodles are also excited for the return of Launch-A-Ball presented by Barnes Jewelry. This program along with our Concessions Fundraising Program are exclusively for area non-profit groups (schools, churches, etc) looking for a fun way to raise money during a Sod Poodles home game. Each game, one organization receives numbered tennis balls to sell (3 for $5) from a table on the concourse, around the ballpark, and in the suite level. The non-profit group will receive 50% of gross sales for their Launch-A-Ball game.
Fans who purchase from Launch-A-Ball groups will have the opportunity to toss their numbered ball(s) towards a target in left-field after the game is over. The fan with the winning toss will receive the other 50% of the nightly jackpot or a prize from one of many other local businesses partnered with the Sod Poodles.
Along with the 50% of gross Launch-A-Ball sales for their game, each organization will also receive in-park recognition via a live public-address announcement and the opportunity to display promotional materials at their table to promote their cause and interact with local community members. To be eligible to participate in Launch-A-Ball, groups and organizations are first required to participate in a Sod Poodles ticket fundraiser which will further help benefit the organization. For further information or with any help getting signed up for any of these three programs, please email Sod Poodles Community Relations Manager, Austin Jackson ([email protected]).
Sign-Ups are currently open for the 2023 season. The Sod Poodles will start their season at HODGETOWN on Tuesday, April 11 when they host the Corpus Christi Hooks, Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros.
