The Kane County Cougars, along with the South Elgin Lions Club, have formally kicked off the 2014 Winter Coat Drive at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. The Cougars have been proud partners with Lions International for many years and beginning on November 11, both the Cougars and Lions International are counting on fans' generosity this holiday season.
Fans are asked to bring a gently-used winter coat or winter outerwear item to the Cougars' administrative office lobby (2-story glass building located next to Gate 3) between 9 AM and 5 PM Monday-Friday. In conjunction with the South Elgin Lions Club, the Cougars are collecting items that will be donated to area families who are in need this winter. Fans who donate an item will receive one undated ticket voucher, valid for a 2015 regular season Cougars game. All donated items will be given to area families who are in need this winter. The Cougars are requesting that items be donated by Friday morning, December 19.
