[Written by TSM Intern: Francesca Orsomarso]
Take the whole family out to a ball game this coming weekend when local baseball favorites, the Utica Brewers, host a local fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society.
On Saturday, June 27th, the Utica Brewers will partner with the American Cancer Society to host a 'Relay For Life Night' at Donovan Stadium at Murnane Field in Utica as a way to raise funds to help support this year's Relay For Life. The Brewers will take on the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs at 6:35PM.
The evening is set to feature on-field recognition of local cancer survivors, who will be introduced alongside the starting line-up, as well as a mini-Chinese auction, featuring autographed baseball memorabilia, tickets to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and much more. This family fun event will end with free fireworks after the game.
Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase at the American Cancer Society Office, located at 100 Lomond Court in Utica. Tickets are $4 each, with $2 from each ticket benefiting the American Cancer Society. If going to the game, be sure to wear your Relay For Life participant or survivor t-shirt to receive $1 off admission.
The Utica Brewers are one of 10 ball clubs in the Upstate New York region that play in a wooden bat summer league known as the 'Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League' (PGCBL). The team is comprised of college and university players from around the country.
