The act of giving was also center field Saturday afternoon in Myrtle Beach.
Employees from the Sheraton Broadway Plantation presented an enormous check to The Grand Strand Miracle League.
The Miracle League is a baseball league designed exclusively for children with disabilities.
And the check wasn’t just dollars and cents, it was for $58,123.92.
The emotional presentation was quite a surprise to Miracle League volunteers.
Sheraton employees say they held bake sale, auctions, and just about anything else they could do to raise money.
Wayne Rickman, Vice President of Sales said, “One of the project managers literally came to our houses and took all of our garbage out of our garages, took it down to save more auction house and they made thousands of dollars for that event.”
Sheraton employees said the money is the result of three months of fundraising.
