As a municipal utility, Lakeland Electric ranks giving back to the community as a high priority. We do this in many ways. We offer grants to local charities, scholarships to students, and sponsor and volunteer at many community events. Another way we give back is by supporting local sports organizations. These organizations use our city facilities, boost our local economy, and enhance our customers’ quality of life.
Our next event is a Customer Appreciation Baseball Game when the Lakeland Flying Tigers play the Florida Fire Frogs April 28. Come out and enjoy a free game on us! To get into the game, present your Lakeland Electric utility bill and you will receive four (4) complimentary tickets. You may use a paper or a digital bill. The box office opens at 4 p.m.
This year, Lakeland Electric is holding a contest to give two winners four (4) free suite seats and the chance to throw out the first pitch. We’re holding this contest through a food drive at the game to support VISTE, Volunteers in Service to the Elderly. The two customers who bring the most non-perishable food to Joker Marchant Stadium on April 28 between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. will win.
The game begins at 6 p.m. at the Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, 2301 Lakeland Hills Blvd.
A fireworks extravaganza follows the game to get spectators in the mood for summertime.
