The Marlins Wives will hold their annual drive to help prepare South Florida's less fortunate children with the necessary supplies to head back to school. School supplies, such as paper, pencils, folders, notebooks, backpacks, calculators, rulers, crayons, and even clothing such as socks and under garments, will be collected at the entrance gates. Items will be donated to local children's charities and underserved schools in South Florida. Fans who donate supplies before the game on Sunday, August 17th will receive a Marlins gift!
The Marlins Wives and the Marlins Foundation once again will team up to hold the Wives Tackle Box Auction. Each Tackle Box represents a Marlins player and includes autographed memorabilia and equipment as well as items unique to their personalities. The Marlins Wives collect the items for the tackle boxes and help show them off during a silent auction held at Marlins Park in Section 16. Proceeds will benefit the Wives' charity of choice. Last year the money raised went to Shake-A-Leg Miami.
As part of the ongoing Citrus Cup tradition, the Rays and Marlins Wives are set to play the 4th annual Citrus Cup Softball game. Prior to the start of the Rays v. Marlins game at Marlins Park on June 3rd, fans will have the opportunity to attend the Wives' softball game. Each team of Wives will play on behalf of the charity of their choice. In 2013 the Marlins Wives played for Shake-A-Leg Miami and the Rays Wives played for Autism Speaks.
