Holland America Line has announced that it is now the presenting sponsor of the Seattle Mariners’ “Salute to Those Who Serve” on-field recognition program honoring those who serve in the United States military. Additionally, for the third season, each strikeout thrown by a Seattle Mariners pitcher during a home game earns a donation from the cruise line to Seattle Children’s Hospital under the “Holland America Line K’s for Kids” program.
Holland America and the Mariners have partnered for the last six years that has included a corporate sponsorship and community-based programs. The cruise line will continue to sponsor Get Well Tours with visits to area hospitals by Mariners players in addition to “K’s for Kids” and the “Salute to Those Who Serve.”
During Friday and Sunday games, a member of the military (active, reserve, veteran or retired) is recognized on-field for his or her service to our country. Each honoree will receive four tickets and one parking pass to the game.
Holland America Line is also the presenting sponsor of the annual Fan Appreciation Night celebration at Safeco Field. Traditionally the final Friday home game of each season, Fan Appreciation Night celebrates the community support by loyal Mariners fans with prize drawings throughout the game. As part of its sponsorship, Holland America Line provides cruise giveaways at the F.A.N.
Holland America Line is also the presenting sponsor of the seventh-inning stretch, as well as the named sponsor for the Seattle Mariners team poster giveaway and of each of 13 three- to 10-game home stands on radio broadcasts and stadium billboards.
