Fundraising For Friends At Florida Gulf Coast

South Florida is still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Irma. To aid relief efforts, the Saints will be fundraising for the American Red Cross during these games. All donations will benefit southern Florida’s hurricane relief efforts.
Fans who make a $5 donation to the Red Cross during either game will receive a free ticket voucher. The voucher will be good for one future regular season home game. Fans can choose a Men’s or Women’s game. Donations can be made at the American Red Cross Booth at the games.
