(AKRON, OHIO) Nov. 14, 2013 - In the spirit of the upcoming winter holiday season, the Akron RubberDucks are excited to bring back its highly-anticipated "20 Days of Giving" starting Wednesday, Nov. 20 until Friday, Dec. 20. The promotion is packed with unique, experience-based prizes only available during this once-a-year promotion.
Some of the prizes include traveling with the RubberDucks on a road trip, a personalized card in the 2014 team set, a custom concourse sign at Canal Park, and an authentic, personalized Akron RubberDucks jersey. A complete list of the daily prizes is below.
"With the positive feedback from the '20 Days of Giving' in 2013, we knew we had to bring back the promotion this year in a big way for the first RubberDucks' season. I think our amazing lineup of experience-based prizes is something any baseball fan would always remember," said Brian Flenner, Director of Ticketing.
The promotion will run on 20 weekdays through Friday, Dec. 20, excluding Nov. 27-29 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
There are three ways to become eligible for the giveaway prizes: become a season ticket holder with a deposit or paid-in-full, purchase a flex or fireworks pack, or schedule a group with a deposit placed for the 2014 season. Fans who have already purchased one of these options are eligible to win.
Each of the 20 days, the RubberDucks will select a random winner who will be directly notified and the daily results will be posted on www.akronrubberducks.com, the club's Twitter feed @AkronRubberDuck, and the club's Facebook page www.facebook.com/AkronRubberDucks.
Fans can order season tickets, flex packs, and arrange for group outings by contacting the Akron RubberDucks at 330-253-5151 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
