The Fort Myers Miracle have announced a partnership with Achieva Credit Union that will provide up to 50 free tickets per game to area nonprofit organizations.

Achieva is inviting registered 501(c)(3) organizations to sit in its “Community Corner” at Hammond Stadium, offering up to 50 tickets so local groups can bring the whole team to the ballpark for Miracle home games.

“Achieva Credit Union has been a tremendous community partner for many years, and the ‘Community Corner’ is a great way to reward local organizations and individuals that dedicate their time and energy to great causes,” said Chris Peters, president and general manager of the Fort Myers Miracle.

“Achieva’s presence in Lee County is growing,” said Achieva CEO Gary Regoli. “Community involvement is a large part of Achieva’s company culture, and that makes the partnership with the Fort Myers Miracle such a good fit.”

The credit union just announced it is in the process of acquiring Preferred Community Bank, which will expand Achieva’s presence in Lee County with three more branches when the transaction is completed later this year. In addition, Achieva has played a major sponsorship role in events around Southwest Florida like the Coconut Run 5K & Kid’s Run to support area schools each year as part of the Coconut Festival in Cape Coral. Achieva has also sponsored the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts and has partnerships with area cities to produce “Movies in the Park” events, jazz festivals and “Boat-a-Long” events.

The Miracle, the Class-A Advanced Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, begin the 2018 season on Thursday, April 5 against the Charlotte Stone Crabs. The 140-game regular season schedule runs through Sunday, Sept. 2.

The Miracle also are hosting five Nonprofit Nights during the season.
