SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs are inviting fans around the world to become a part of #TeamDK.
#TeamDK has been established in recognition of Sea Dogs’ Equipment Manager David “DK” Kelly, who has been with the team since its inception in 2005. Today in Saint John, Kelly is undergoing his second surgical procedure in less than a year after being diagnosed with cancer in his neck.
“DK has been a part of our family since Day 1,” said Sea Dogs president Wayne Long. “Friends, former players and fans from all over the world are asking what they can do to help. We are rallying behind him. We want to invite everyone to join #TeamDK and offer well-wishes and support to DK and his family.”
We are encouraging everyone to get involved by logging on to the website: http://teamdk.eflea.ca/
The team has created a PayPal account on the site through which financial contributions will be accepted.
The Sea Dogs are also organizing an online auction. More details will be released soon.
Supporters can participate at upcoming home games.
Fans attending the team’s remaining three home games can sign a greeting card, which will be available at Sea Dogs Central, located behind Section S, on the Harbour Station concourse. Greetings can also be emailed to: email@example.com.
The Sea Dogs Foundation will be holding a raffle where one lucky fan will win accommodations and tickets for two to a pair of Sea Dogs’ games next season.
A silent auction is also planned.
Donations can be made by contacting Administrative Assistant, Amanda Greene, during regular business hours at (506) 632-9260 or by visiting the Sea Dogs Administration Office on the pedway level of Harbour Station.
