The IronPigs are looking to sell out Coca-Cola Park this month as they team up with Olympus Corporation of the Americas and Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute to host a “Virtual Strike Out Cancer” event through the end of October.
During the month of October, the team is attempting to "sell out" Coca-Cola Park via a virtual fundraiser. Fans can purchase a virtual seat for $11 and net proceeds from those sales will support these local cancer support groups:
• American Cancer Society
• Angel 34 Foundation
• Boutique at the Rink
• Cancer Support Community
• Dream Come True
• Julia’s Grace Foundation
• Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute Prager Fund
• Life Always Facing Forward
• Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley
• Women’s 5K Classic
One lucky person who purchases a virtual seat will win an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Camera and accessories kit, valued at $925!
“We are honored to be teaming up with Olympus and Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute to host the virtual Strike Out Cancer throughout all of October,” said IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. “This will be a great way to recognize those battling cancer and their families, along with cancer support organizations throughout the Lehigh Valley.”
Virtual Strike Out Cancer will raise awareness and support for cancer patients, their families, and cancer support organizations in the Lehigh Valley. Fans are encouraged to submit photos of their loved ones for whom they’re standing up to cancer. The IronPigs will share these photos on their social media platforms, with a special Strike Out Cancer frame.
