Southeastern Federal, VSU host baseball, movie in the park

VALDOSTA — Almost everyone enjoys movies and almost everyone enjoys baseball, so what happens when you combine the two? That is exactly what Southeastern Federal Credit Union will be doing tonight with its Movies in the Park event.

Valdosta State University’s Blazer baseball team will begin its game against Lee University at 5 p.m. Immediately following the game, SFCU will play a movie on the outfield of the Blazers field.

“We’re always looking for ways to contribute to our community and make it a better place to live. It’s part of the credit union philosophy. This event is fun, it’s free, and it’s something the whole family can enjoy. We’re proud to offer this to our community and we hope everyone will join us for the movie after the game,” said Lori Cauley, SFCU vice president of marketing and business development.

This event began as a way for SFCU to partner with VSU Athletics.

Admission to the baseball game is $5 for adults and $3 for children, but admission to the movie is free.

Free popcorn will be passed out during the movie.

In addition to watching the game and movie, kids are invited to bring their gloves to the event and play catch with the Blazers before the movie begins.

As of print time Thursday, SFCU still planned to hold the movie event. However, due to forecasts for rain, there is a chance the event may be postponed. Southeastern Federal will update its Facebook page as decisions are made today regarding the movie showing.

More information including weather delays and the movie title, follow Southeastern Federal Credit Union on Facebook and Instagram, or visit www.southeasternfcu.org; or call the Southeastern Movie Hotline, (229) 244-2732.
