Tickets to Jays-Mariner baseball game being raffled off to support Campbell River Special Olympics

If you’re a Major League baseball fan in B.C. there’s probably no game more eagerly anticipated than when the Toronto Blue Jays play in Seattle against the Mariners.

In the past, these games have almost sounded like a home game for the Jays, so many B.C. baseball fans make the trip down the I-5 to catch the game.

Well, if you want to win two tickets to the Mariners-Blue Jays game at Safeco Field on Saturday, Aug. 4 all you have to do is attend the Campbell River Giants mens fastball game against Nanaimo starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 and buy a $5 ticket (or more than one) to get in the draw. You have to attend the Giants’ doubleheader at the Sportsplex Diamond #3 – a.k.a, the Homer Dome – in order to buy a ticket. You don’t have to be there for the draw but you gotta buy the ticket there.

The tickets were donated by Marine Link Transportation and proceeds from the ticket sales will go to Campbell River Special Olympics.

It’s a real community effort behind the Giants Special Olympics fundrasier with the Music Plant donating the sound system which Campbell River Storm announced Brian Down will use as the game announcer.

Tyee Chevrolet is sponsoring the costs of the umpires for the games and T. J. Contracting and Griffin Restorations are also supporting the event.
