We were discussing this the other night at the adult Worry-Free Dinner: going to baseball games (or really not) with severe peanut allergies. Well, here's your chance a "Nut-Free Baseball Game". Sounds like alot of fun! From my food allergy friends in New Jersey.
Walk for Food Allergy to Kickoff Fundraising with the Lakewood BlueClaws
Public Invited to Join Long Branch Walkers at a Nut-Free Baseball Game
LAKEWOOD, N.J. (June 22, 2009) -- The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network will host an inaugural fundraising event at the Lakewood BlueClaws’ Game on Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at FirstEnergy Park, Lakewood. In an effort to help protect allergic fans and in honor of all individuals with food allergies, the BlueClaws will have an ingredient list available of every food item sold. That evening, all items sold at the concession stands will be nut-free. All children ages 12 and under will get a free hot dog, chips, and soda! This is the first time the BlueClaws has sponsored a nut-free game.
Tickets are $10.00 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Food Allergy Walk; Moving Toward a Cure in Long Branch, on Saturday, September 12, 2009.
The game against the Lake County (Ohio) Captains will begin at 7:05 PM. Fans are advised to arrive early as this will also be “Aviators Night,” which will showcase a pregame jet flyover, a military honor guard with the flag and other aviation exhibits outside the stadium.
For Food Allergy Awareness, BlueClaws has reserved 350 seats in the same section so fans with Walk team shirts or banners will have an opportunity to be on the stadium’s live monitor. Seats will be washed down prior to the game to ensure that there will be no nut residue. Tickets must be purchased at least 48 hours in advance; For more information on purchasing tickets, contact Jo Ann Molnar, Walk co-chair, at 732-241-5444 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will be available for pick up at Will Call.
