So, no baseball yet, huh? It really is the pits. It does leave ample time for more noble pursuits, however. I, for instance, have been using this time to think about my place in the universe and also to finish season five of Justified. Despite those advantages, the return of baseball is more than welcome for me, and I am sure most of you feel the same. And so I must ask you: what better way to welcome the return of baseball from its excruciating two-day break than to be there welcoming the team home with open arms?
The answer is that there isn't a better way, which is why you should participate in this here raffle! Member of the VEB fundraising team Scott B. has graciously donated his two tickets for this Saturday to help support the cause. This Saturday, you could be sitting in section 197 in aisle seats to watch the Cardinals take on the Mets and if you get there in time, a Matt Carpenter bobble head might be in your future.
Here is what you need to do:
- Go to Scott's donation page and click the red "Donate" button.
- Fill out the on screen instructions.
- Donate the amount of your choosing:
- $5 = 1 entry
- $10 = 3 entries
- $20 = 8 entries
- $40 = 20 entries and this year's Jim Edmonds shirt
Now, say you enter this raffle and are sad because you didn't win? Well you are in luck! Scott is also including tickets for the same seats to the games on Wednesday, August 12 at 7:15pm against the Pirates, Sunday August 16 at 1:15pm against the Marlins, and Monday, August 31 at 7:15pm against the Nationals. We will draw again for each game, so if you donate for this game, but do not win, you will still be eligible to win tickets to the other three.
And that is it! All you have to do is donate between now and 12:00pm CST on Friday, July 17 to be eligible to win tickets to the game on Saturday. I will e-mail the winner and Scott can leave his tickets at the will-call window for you.
Reminder: This prize is two tickets to the Cardinals Saturday, July 18, 6:15pm home game versus the New York Mets, pitching matchup looks to be John Lackey versus Bartolo Colon, no rain in the forecast.
