If you’re tired of chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day, the Columbia Fireflies are offering a way to brighten up your holiday.

Fireflies mascot Mason will be hand-delivering valentines to special someones across the Columbia-area Wednesday and Thursday, according to a post from the Fireflies.

The package includes two tickets for the Fireflies opening night, four cookies from The Buttered Noodle Bakery and a team mug or pint glass, according to the statement. Mason can’t be everywhere at once, so the deliveries will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis.

The valentine costs $50, according to the statement. Those interested in ordering can contact the team at bbuckley@columbiafireflies.com or at 803-888-3047.
