NBC LA is sponsoring a drive-through relief drive at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, March 15, to help raise money for the American Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.
Members of the NBC LA news team and Dodger alumni Bobby Castillo, Kenny Landreaux, Rudy Law, Al Ferrara, Jimmy Campanis and Derrel Thomas will be taking donations from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Dodger Stadium Parking Lot 1, accessible through Sunset Gate A, located at 1000 Elysian Park Ave., Los Angeles.
Cash donations and checks will be accepted. All checks should be made out the American Red Cross with “Japan Tsunami Fund” in the memo line.
Donors who give $20 or more will each receive two tickets to a spring training exhibition game at Dodger Stadium.
The drive-through event is also supported by Clear Channel Radio.
The Dodgers have many connections with Japan, including current pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. Sunday’s spring training game against the Chicago White Sox in Glendale, Ariz., began with a moment of silence in memory of the thousands who died in the disaster.
