Wizards night at Pelican's game promises to be magical (Update: Magic was had, USA Today Highlights)

Update 7/15: The Sun News has some photos of the event. Also, The USA Today picked up on the Potter inspired uniform change and highlighted it in their Day in Sports section online -image 14. 

First Report 7/7: To commemorate the release of the final installment of the Harry Potter movie series, the team will wear special uniforms that look like Harry's robe on their July14th game against the Salem Red Sox.

The duds will be auctioned off for charity after the game. The proceeds from the jersey auction will go towards the Bruce Dal Canton Scholarship Fund and Autism Advocate Foundation.

The fun includes another great giveaway as well, as the first 500 fans ages 12 and under will receive a Wizard Wand! Don't forget to wear your wizard costume to the ballpark, because there will be a costume contest in the seventh inning, and the winner will take home a Pelicans Prize Pack. The night ends with a bang as there will be a spectacular fireworks display after the game.

Like every Thursday at BB&T Coastal Field, it's Thirsty Thursday, featuring one dollar domestic draft beers from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. courtesy of Better Brands, Celebrations Nightlife and the Weekly Surge.
