Supporting charitable organizations throughout the season is very important to the team.

The D-Braves will team-up with Danville Scion, Angus Heating & Air, and Blue Ridge Beverage to present Military Appreciation Night on July 13. The team will wear camouflage-themed jerseys, which will be sold in a silent auction during the game with proceeds benefitting the Danville Veteran's Memorial. Wrestling legend Sgt. Slaughter will appear as a special guest to help honor our military.
The D-Braves will partner with the Centra Alan B. Pearson Regional Cancer Center on July 28 to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. The team will wear pink-themed jerseys in a show of solidarity against this deadly disease. The game-worn jerseys will be sold in a silent auction during the game with proceeds split between the Centra Foundation Cancer Patient Care Fund and Danville Cancer Association. The team is very excited about continuing their involvement in these important community initiatives by wearing themed jerseys on the Military Appreciation and Breast Cancer Awareness Nights.
