September 7 game proceeds also to be donated to Red Cross, matched by PeoplesBank
(York, Pa., Sept. 6, 2017) - With dreary weather in the area and the fate of tonight’s game still up in the air, York Revolution, American Red Cross, and Bailey Coach officials announced this morning that the team’s planned fundraiser and supply drive for Hurricane Harvey flood relief has been extended to include tomorrow night’s doubleheader against the Long Island Ducks.
“As of right now, we are still planning to play tonight, but we know people would prefer to come out for a beautiful evening of baseball,” said Revolution President Eric Menzer. “With tomorrow’s weather looking much more favorable, we really hope Yorkers will take the opportunity to come out for a great night and a great cause.”
All proceeds from ticket sales for both tonight and tomorrow’s games will be donated to the American Red Cross to directly support flood relief efforts in the Houston area, which includes Sugar Land, home of the Revolution’s fellow Atlantic League team, the Skeeters.
PeoplesBank announced earlier that it will match those proceeds and effectively double the monetary support for the region. Bailey Coach, a FEMA-certified motorcoach company that has already driven donated supplies to the affected area, will also extend its supply drive and be at PeoplesBank Park for tonight’s game (if played) and tomorrow’s doubleheader to collect donations of hygiene and baby products.
Tonight’s game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Tomorrow’s doubleheader (necessitated by Tuesday’s rainout) will feature two seven-inning games beginning at 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.yorkrevolution.com, by calling (717) 801-HITS, or in the Apple Chevrolet Ticket Office at the ballpark.
