The Atlanta Braves are offering free tickets to Hurricane Florence evacuees for the next three games at SunTrust Park when the team takes on the Washington Nationals on Friday (7:35 p.m.), Saturday (1:05 p.m.) and Sunday (1:35 p.m.). Also, all the proceeds from this weekend’s 50/50 raffle will benefit Red Cross efforts for the hurricane. 

“As Hurricane Florence approaches, we know how difficult it has been for those who have had to pack up and leave their homes as the storm approaches,” said Derek Schiller, Braves President and CEO in a press release. “The predicted areas that will be affected are in the heart of Braves Country so it hits particularly close to home for us. We hope we can take their mind off the storm for a few hours by coming to enjoy a game at SunTrust Park. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are impacted.”
