(Eastlake, OH) - The Lake County Captains, the class A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, will donate
100% of ticket proceeds to The Cleveland Courage Fund of the Cleveland Foundation for tickets purchased using the on-line promo code COURAGE for the Sunday, June 30 game. The Captains had originally planned to donate the proceeds of their May 28 game and then their June 10 game but both games were postponed due to inclement weather.
Sunday is also a Family Fun Sunday, presented by the Lake County YMCA, featuring a pre-game player autograph session, concourse entertainment and activities, the Kids' Zone area and the opportunity for kids to run the bases after the game. All kids in attendance will receive a Captains activities book and crayons, presented by the YMCA and Lake County Job and Family Services.
The Cleveland Courage Fund of the Cleveland Foundation was established by Cleveland council members Brian Cummins, Matt Zone, and Dona Brady after the discovery of three local women who were held captive in a Cleveland home for a decade. The Fund, so named because of the courage shown by these remarkable women, will directly benefit Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, and Amanda Berry and her daughter. 100% of the monies raised by the Fund will benefit the survivors.
Ticket may be purchased on-line at www.CaptainsBaseball.com, at the Classic Park box office or by phone at 440-954 WINS (9467).
Fans may also contribute cash donations, which will be donated to the Fund, on the night of the game at the Classic Park PNC Fans First Center.
Individual game tickets for all Captains games, may be purchased at the Captains official website www.CaptainsBaseball.com
