E-mail Print PDF

The time is finally here to kick off our 3rd annual American Cancer Society Day at the Ballpark with the St. Louis Cardinals! We are going to “Strike Out Cancer” on Sunday, August 2, 2015 at 1:15pm at Busch Stadium against the Colorado Rockies. We will continue to sell tickets to the game for $20 for sections 300/400 and $30 for sections 100/200. Each ticket includes a hot dog and a soft drink AND pre-game festivities such as field access and autograph sessions.

This is an awesome opportunity open to committee members, teams, staff and anyone else you can think of to fundraise for their teams and events. Teams will get $6 for every $20 ticket sold and $8 for every $30 ticket sold. There are also multiple incentives to participate in this program, such as:

--Everyone with a ticket will receive entrance into the Pre Game Activities including player auto-graphs, dugout tour, etc.

--An exclusive autograph session for the first 150 volunteers selling 25 or more tickets.

--Top 2 volunteers who sell the most tickets will have the opportunity to throw out the first pitch.

--Those who sell more than 25 tickets, will enter into a drawing for autographed STL Cardinal memorabilia (1 entry per 25 tickets sold)

--Those who sell more than 50 tickets, will enter into a drawing for the chance to MEET a current St. Louis Cardinals Player in the Clubhouse (1 entry per 50 tickets sold)

--Those who sell more than 50 tickets, will enter into a drawing for the chance to win a STL Cardinals Experience Package that includes 4 box seats and a pregame field visit for another game (1 entry per 50 tickets sold) 

TO ORDER TICKETS: Visit  www.stlcardinalsrfl.org -- make sure you order tickets for the Illinois game, then fill in the information that is needed and click submit. Tickets are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. You do not actually pay for the tickets through this website. You will need to send in money, to the Champaign ACS office, before you can receive the tickets. You are responsible for paying for all tickets you reserve through the website. 

Attached is an event flyer and ticket sales incentive flyer. This is such an easy fundraiser and so much fun! It is awesome to see groups of Relayers and ACS volunteers all coming together at the ballpark to celebrate and enjoy a great day of Cardinals baseball!
