SOUTHAVEN, Miss. The Mississippi RiverKings' players, coaches and staff made their annual visit to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® in Memphis on Monday. The local hospital leads and helps the world in understanding, treating, and researching castatrophic childhood disease. St. Jude remains the only health organization to find a cure for sickle cell disease through bone marrow transplantation.
"The work done at St. Jude really is amazing and it's great to be able to bring the team over, spend some time with the kids and give them something to smile about," RiverKings General Manager David Schmoll said. "It's also important to show the new players and remind the returning guys why we do this night to raise money for the hospital."
Through the organization's commitment and passion for the youth in the Mid-South, the RiverKings have dedicated a home game, Pack the House Night on Friday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m., to honor their cooperation with the hospital. Tickets for the game can be purchased in advance at a discounted rate with red level seats just starting at $6 and group rates starting as low as $4. For every ticket sold, $3 will go directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®.
