Even though the Braves finished the season with a 67-95 record, fans still saw a lot of fireworks after every strikeout by a Braves pitcher.
For the fifth straight year of our Bring the Heat™ campaign, Gas South pledged to donate $25 to The Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta every time an Atlanta Braves pitcher threw a strikeout this season.
From opening day up until the last game on October 4th, the Braves pitchers threw 1,115 strikeouts! That’s $27,875! But we didn’t stop there. To raise additional funds and awareness about Bring the Heat, Gas South ran a Twitter campaign during the Yankees series and asked fans to tweet using #BringTheHeat2015. The campaign raised an additional $5,000, thanks to your tweets, which brings Gas South’s total donation to the Salvation Army to $32,875.
Meredith Hodges, Gas South vice president, presented Major Todd Hawks of the Salvation Army with the check. The donation will support the 125th anniversary of The Salvation Army’s Doing the Most Good in Metro Atlanta.
Since 2010, Gas South has contributed more than $267,000 to Georgia nonprofits through Bring the Heat and we’re looking forward to another successful season next year!
