RASCAL'S SWEETHEART SPECIAL RETURNS TO THE QUAD CITIES

DAVENPORT, Iowa (JAN. 25, 2013) – It's the time of year for Rascal the River Bandit to set down his bat and glove to don Cupid's bow and arrow. The Quad Cities' favorite raccoon is offering his Valentine delivery services to the first 25 people to place orders for Rascal's Sweetheart Special packages that celebrate Valentine's Day the River Bandits way.

For just $35, the River Bandits mascot will paw-deliver a personalized card and any of three packages between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, Wednesday, Feb. 13, or Thursday, Feb. 14, to the workplace or residence of a special someone within a 25-mile radius from Modern Woodmen Park.

"Rascal's Sweetheart Special is the perfect gift to warm a loved one's Valentine's Day with a look forward to baseball season," said River Bandits owner Dave Heller. "Your loved one will receive a truly memorable Valentine when Rascal appears at his or her home or office to deliver a unique surprise."

The Sweetheart Special comes in the following three packages, each of which is $35:
