Holland America Line announced their new “K’s for Kids” donation program with the Seattle Mariners in a pre-game ceremony at Safeco Field on May 29. For every strike out recorded by a Mariners pitcher at Safeco Field through the end of the 2014 season, Holland America Line will make a donation to Seattle Children’s Uncompensated Care Fund, with a total commitment of $25,000.
 
For the past three years, Holland America Line has been a significant supporter of both the Seattle Mariners and Seattle Children’s, and the “K’s for Kids” partnership is the latest extension of this relationship. In addition to being the official sponsor of the suite deck at Safeco Field, Holland America Line presents the Mariners “Get Well Tour” where Mariners players and the Mariner Moose visit children and veterans in Northwest hospitals. The line also donates cruises for raffle prizes at the annual Mariners Fan Appreciation Night.
 
“Holland America Line is proud to partner with the Seattle Mariners on ‘K’s for Kids’ to benefit Uncompensated Care at Seattle Children’s,” said Richard Meadows, executive vice president of marketing, sales and guest programs for Holland America Line. “All three organizations share a solid commitment to making a difference in our local community, and this program is a great way to help cheer on the home team and make an impact at the same time.” 
 
“Holland America Line has been a tremendous supporter over the past few years,” said Joe Chard, Seattle Mariners Vice President of Corporate Business and Community Relations. “We are thrilled to team up again on ‘K’s for Kids’ as another way the Mariners support the fine work of Seattle Children’s.”
 
Seattle Children's is ranked among the best children's hospitals in the country and serves Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. In 2013, Children's served 123,833 children costing more than $117 million in uncompensated care funds. Donations such as those raised through programs such as "K's  for Kids" are vital to providing this care.
