DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - The Quad Cities River Bandits are celebrating after being honored on a national level for their charitable efforts.
Owner Dave Heller accepted Baseball Digest's Commitment to Charity Award on Thursday.
Most of the honor is due to the team's efforts in raising money for flood relief in downtown Davenport. Between fan donations and collections from Genesis Health System, the Bandits raised more than $100,000.
