The unique relationship between the San Antonio Scorpions North American Soccer League team and the Morgan's Wonderland theme park for the disabled is paying big dividends for both, 1200 WOAI news reports.
The Scorpions and Toyota Field Saturday night presented a check for $662,000 to the theme park as well as to other local non profits.
Some of the money will go to Oklahoma City tornado victims, and some will go to local breast cancer research, but the bulk will benefit Morgan's Wonderland, which is located across the street from Toyota Field on the city's north side.
"The Scorpions and their newly opened stadium home, Toyota Field, are dedicated to producing net profits to help non-profit Morgan's Wonderland meet its operating expenses as well as expand programs and services for those with special needs," said Gordon Hartman, owner of both Morgan's Wonderland and the Scorpions.
Hartman says eventually, the soccer team will be able to donate about $1 million to the theme park and other non profits.
The Scorpions are believed to be the only professional sports team in the world which exists to benefit a non profit organization.
