This exciting volunteer outing demonstrates the strength of the partnership between Pensacola’s leader in affordable housing and Pensacola’s top-notch baseball organization.

This partnership will continue throughout the calendar year, with a big highlight coming on Wednesday, July 3, with the Pensacola Habitat for Humanity Takeover Night at the Blue Wahoos home game that evening.

“We depend on our many dedicated community partners to have the impact that we do, and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos stand near the forefront of those partners,” said Pensacola Habitat for Humanity President/CEO Sam Young.

“Our partnership with them has truly been a home run, and I can’t wait to see us swing for the fences at our Takeover Night.”

The opportunities provided by the Blue Wahoos have proven to be a big part of Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build initiative, as Women Builders earned nearly $43,000 in donations in 2023, primarily by working concessions during Blue Wahoos
home games.

Last year’s Pensacola Habitat for Humanity Takeover Night was a huge success that resulted in almost $6,000 contributed in just one night. Habitat is gearing up for another Takeover Game at the stadium open to the community on July 3rd! We hope you considering joining us at that event as well!

As part of this year’s Pensacola Habitat for Humanity Takeover Night, staff and volunteers will fill the concession stands, sell 50/50 tickets, participate in on-field activities, hand out freebies, cheer on the home team and so much more. The night will be capped off by another spectacular postgame fireworks show to kick off the Fourth of July celebrations.

This incredible evening of baseball, community, and partnership will help raise thousands of dollars toward providing affordable homeownership opportunities in Escambia and Santa
Rosa Counties.

The proceeds of tickets purchased through Pensacola Habitat for Humanity will go right back into funding its mission.
