South Atlantic Bank Raises Money for Grand Strand Miracle Leagues
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, September 12, 2017 – South Atlantic Bank sponsored the Grand Strand Miracle Leagues’ Baseball
and BBQ Fall Opener for the eighth consecutive year. This year, the bank donated $5,224 to the organization.
The bank’s employees raised money throughout the summer with Dress Down Fridays and collected donations from customers in all
of our branches. Employees volunteered at the Fall Opener helping serve BBQ and assisting players on the field.
The event took place Thursday, September 7, at the James C. Benton Miracle League Field at the Pepper Geddings Recreation
Center Complex. South Atlantic Bank’s President Scott Plyler and Myrtle Beach Regional Executive Paul Peeples presented the
$5,224 check to Carson Benton.
12he Miracle Leagues organization was founded in 2001 to provide people with special needs the opportunity to play baseball. Using
generous community contributions, an ADA approved, adapted baseball field was constructed. The rubberized surface of the field
is perfect for wheelchairs and walkers.
The rules are simple: Everyone plays. Everyone crosses home plate. Everyone wins! The
organization expanded in 2011 to include soccer, and in 2013 added the All-Star Park, an all access playground. New to the
organization this year is a golf program.
