Capital Bank Brings Mega Money Mondays to Asheville Tourists’ Fans

ASHEVILLE, NC – Starting Monday, April 13, Capital Bank will hand out cash to fans during Mega Money Mondays at every Asheville Tourists Monday night home game this season, The first 750 adults through the gate receive an envelope containing between $1 and $100 in cash. There are also prizes in some of the envelopes, including Tourists tickets.

On top of that, should the Asheville starting pitcher throw a perfect game on a Monday home game, every fan in attendance at the contest will divide $1,000,000, courtesy of Capital Bank.

“This is our opportunity to bring even more excitement to an already fun night out at McCormick Field,” said Al Davis, senior vice president and western region executive. “We know every bit of extra cash helps and we’re proud to support the fans and the Tourists team with the much anticipated Mega Money Mondays.”

Fans are also encouraged to stop by one of Capital Bank’s four Asheville-area locations to sign up to win the Family VIP Experience which includes four VIP tickets to each Monday home game, along with food and drinks in the clubhouse luxury box, the opportunity to throw out the first pitch, a souvenir photo with Teddy Tourist, VIP parking pass and a Tourists gift bag.

A winner will be chosen each Friday before the next Monday game. Capital Bank’s Mega Mondays are April 13 (opening night), April 20, May 11, May 18, June 15, July 6 and July 27.

“It’s understandable why few promotions have generated more anticipation and created more positive response from the Tourists’ fans since the team announced Capital Bank’s promotion in March,” said Chris Smith, the Tourists assistant general manager and community liaison. “Capital Bank has been a great sponsor for the last few years of the Tourists and this time they have gone above and beyond in generating enthusiasm at the ballpark.”

Capital Bank Asheville locations are 1310 Hendersonville Road., 918 Merrimon Avenue, 462 New Leicester Highway and 11 North Market Street.
