Throughout the Rockies-Dodgers game, Rockies fans will have the chance to give in order to raise money for the Colorado Rockies Foundation. This year’s featured charities are Big Brothers Big Sisters, ACE Scholarships, and Junior Achievement.
Opportunities for Rockies fans to give include the following:
A $250 home run package will reportedly include autographed baseballs, a Charity Night mask (a perfect fashion statement during these pandemic-filled days), 2021 Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story bobbleheads, plus more.
A $750 grand slam package will include everything in the home run package, plus the choice of a Blackmon, Story, or Nolan Arenado autographed jersey.
Please note there are limited quantities of both packages. You can visit Rockies.com/RCN for more details and the ability to donate.
Last year’s Rockies Charity Night raised $367,000 so the bar is set high for this year’s activities. As a lesson learned from last season’s Charity Night activities, packages will sell out quickly so be ready to order if you’re interested in the home run or grand slam package.
Colorado fans have already shown their great amount of generosity this year. With the regular-season home opener postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rockies hosted a “stay-at-home” opener. Using video highlights from past games, the Rockies also used the day to raise money for food banks in Colorado and Wyoming. In all, more than $500,000 was raised, including $300,000 from the Rockies Foundation and $100,000 from Rockies first baseman Daniel Murphy and his family.
