MEMPHIS, TN – The biggest 901 Day Celebration will feature a special 901-themed jersey auction to benefit local non-profit organizations.

This 901 Day (Friday, Sept. 1 to non-Memphians) the Redbirds will host the largest 901 Day Celebration in conjunction with the team’s 7:05 p.m. game against the Gwinnett Stripers (Triple-A, Atlanta Braves).

Throughout the game, the Redbirds will auction off specialty 901 Day jerseys featuring artwork by local modern-impressionist artist David D. Lynch. Fans can bid on the jersey in an auction benefiting Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis, Mid-South Foodbank, and Children’s Miracle Network in conjunction with Rhodes College Dance Marathon.

The jersey features many iconic landmarks from around the 901. Everything from Memphis blues to Memphis food is covered on this specialty item! The front features the iconic Peabody ducks, Memphis Pyramid and Orpheum Theatre with ‘Memphis’ wordmark across the chest. The Beale Street sign, alongside St. Jude Hospital and a buffalo from Shelby Farms, decorates the back of the jersey. Each jersey is numbered ‘901’ in white lettering on the back.

“Being from Memphis, it was inevitable that this city’s soul & rhythm course through my veins and influence my Art,” Lynch said. “Each painting begins with a composition of a scene which has a certain flow and rhythm so that your eye travels across it while at the same time a mixture of vivid colors convey a sense of mood. I want to create pieces that skew the usual everyday scenery and that are bold and energetic.”

Fans can now purchase any lower bowl tickets at just $9.01. All tickets can be purchased at memphisredbirds.com/901day. Businesses wanting to get involved with the Redbirds 901 Day Celebration are encouraged to call (901) 721-6000 or visit memphisredbirds.com/901day.
