Image by theogeo via FlickrThe Memphis Redbirds are having Organ Donor Night on August 13, 2011 at AutoZone Park in Memphis. Game time is 6:05 PM CDT. Fans will be encouraged to register as organ and tissue donors at the game. The National Foundation for Transplants will have a table set-up to register interested fans. Fans who either register at the game or show that they have already registered will be entered into a drawing for prizes including a keyboard and an autographed team jersey.
In addition, the Redbirds will wear organ themed jerseys that night, a silent auction will be held on those jerseys, a transplant recipient will throw out the first pitch, and a fireworks show will take place after the game. It should be a fun night to support a great cause. If you live in the Memphis area, please go check it out.
