Burlington, IA (July 30, 2014) - Representatives from Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure will be at Community Field this upcoming Friday, August 1 for their Bat 4 the Cure promotion as the Bees take on the Clinton LumberKings at 6:30 PM. They will be on hand to educate fans on the tragic illness that is prostate cancer. They will be in the main concourse providing informational materials that could save lives

"Ed Randall's Bat 4 Cure is an excellent cause, simply put." said Director of Community Relations Nick Waterman. "Prostate Cancer is nothing to take lightly, so making sure fans get the information they need through the baseball scope is a must. I read in the brochure that Prostate Cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the U.S., striking 240,000 men each year, enough to fill Yankee Stadium five times!-that's just so crazy and sad to think about."

On Friday, the Bees will face the Peoria Chiefs at 6:30 PM for Jimmy Buffett Night. Fans may come out and enjoy paradise themed decorations, listen to Jimmy Buffett music in between innings, participate in Jimmy Buffett themed on-field contests. Once again, the gates to the game will open at 5:30 PM.

For more information contact Nick Waterman at (319) 754-5705 or nick@gobees.com.
