CHAMPIONS AGAINST CANCER

SUNDAYS AT THE PARK II
IN MEMORY OF JONATHAN GITELMAN

We are proud to announce the “Champions Against Cancer Sundays at The Park II in Memory of Jonathan Gitelman” program for the 2018 Orioles season.

An article here about the “Sundays at The Park I” appeared in the Columbia Flier and Howard County Times in late Sept 2017, which beautifully explains the origin and purpose of the program as well as the tremendous success of the initial program. The article describes the program in which a family in whom a parent has suffered or is suffering from cancer can have a day at Orioles Park where they can enjoy a “time out” from all the ramifications of cancer such as radiation and drug treatments. In 2017, there were eight awardee families, some of whom had an Oriole representative take them on the field for a family picture before the game. The awardees gave beautiful accounts regarding the needed relaxation they experienced, the great view from their seats 20 rows behind the Oriole dugout, and the great food they bought with the vouchers given to them. All in all, the program was a resounding success.

We proudly believe that “Sundays at the Park II” for 2018 will be bigger and better than 2017. CAC will provide four field box tickets behind the Oriole dugout, free parking, plus at least $10 per person for food, drink, and souvenir coupons to families for each Oriole 2018 Sunday home game.

Tickets will be provided to families that reside in or have a family member working in Howard County, MD and who have a parent who has had or has cancer. To apply, please send an email to championsagainstcancer@gmail.com. In your email, please state how cancer has affected your family and provide 2 non-family references via email stating knowledge of your family situation. Please also provide a first, second, and third choice of an Oriole 2018 Sunday game from the Oriole schedule in the link or from the list of games below. Please try to select games at least one month in advance of the game day.
