CHARLESTON, WV (July 15, 2014) - The West Virginia Power, a Class-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, will celebrate "Christmas in July" on Monday, July 21, at Appalachian Power Park. The Power will hold a canned food drive to benefit Covenant House as well as playing holiday seasonal games and music through the course of the night.
Fans are encouraged to bring two canned goods to the Morris St. gate in exchange for a $2.00 discount coupon off a box seat ticket for any remaining Power home game this season. All donations will benefit the Covenant House in Charleston. Covenant House was founded in 1981 to help people with the fewest resources meet their basic needs: food, clothing, and shelter. Discount coupons are limited to two per person.
The festivities also include an Ugly Sweater Contest for a chance to win four Budweiser Party Deck passes. Second place will walk away with four free box seats, and third prize goes home with four general admission tickets. Other games include a holiday karaoke challenge and a dizzy candy cane race.
Gate open at 6:00 pm on Monday, July 21, with a candy cane giveaway. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. For tickets and more information, contact the Power front office at 304-344-BATS.
