Professional staff organizes 100+ corporate picnics/outings each year. A true turnkey operation, with the only thing required is your invitation list. Purchase a season package and
reward employees and clients throughout the spring/summer months. Plenty of sponsorship opportunities for a game night or exposure throughout the year. Special interest groups are always welcomed to become partners for fundraisers.

Charleston’s CLAIM to FAME:Charleston RiverDogs Family Day
What accomplished actor has ownership in the Charleston RiverDogs? Provided with his own corporate title, Mr. Bill Murray is the Director of Fun for the RiverDogs. Far from an absentee owner, Bill can be seen at “The Joe” on any given night, even throwing the ceremonial first pitch or coaching first base. Although Murray is a Golden Globe winner (Best Actor) and Academy Award nominee, he is most remembered for his role in a sport classic movie, “Caddy Shack.” And what was his character name while spending timeless hours dealing with a destructive dancing gopher?
