While it has been a wet and gloomy spring throughout Manitoba, Peak of the Market and the Winnipeg Goldeyes are hoping to bring a little sunshine to those affected by the floods this spring.
During the July 2-5 home stand versus the St. Paul Saints, Peak of the Market and the Goldeyes are offering up to four complimentary tickets in the On Deck or Grand Slam sections for any of the games to anyone that has been affected by the flooding this year.
“It’s been a frustrating and tough spring for a lot of people in Manitoba. The Goldeyes recognize the many challenges faced by the victims of the flooding and hopefully we can bring some joy to them, if only for a few hours,” Goldeyes General Manager Andrew Collier said.
The flooding across Manitoba has been wide spread. Areas from the southwest corner of the province up to the Interlake region have been affected, causing thousands of people to fight to protect their homes and property. The Goldeyes organization hopes to, in some small way, help flood victims relax for even a few hours by getting out and enjoy a fun-filled Goldeyes game courtesy of Peak of the Market.
“Hundreds of Manitobans have been affected by the flooding, including a few of our growers,” Peak of the Market President and CEO Larry McIntosh said. “The sense of community in our province is second to none. During this flood, we’ve seen neighbours helping neighbours, friends helping friends and strangers helping complete strangers. Our thoughts are with them every day and we hope some can come out to the ballpark to enjoy some time in the sun.”
Tickets will be offered to individuals at the Shaw Park ticket office by simply providing identification and a request. Each flood-affected individual will receive up to four tickets to any of the four games.
