ALTOONA, Pa. -- Sheetz is teaming up with its longtime partner, Altoona Curve, for Sheetz Family Charities' "For the Kidz" Night at Blair County Park, according to an Altoona Curve press release.
Sheetz Family Charities' "For the Kidz" benefits underprivileged children, and each year, the convenience store chain works together with The Salvation Army to identify deserving children from all over the region.
"We are happy that 'For the Kidz' has grown over the years to help thousands of children enjoy the holidays," Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz, said in a statement. "Together with the Curve, we are sure that it will only get stronger and this special fundraiser they've developed is a great way to get fans involved."
Despite being in the middle of summer, the Aug. 25, Altoona Curve game against the Trenton Thunder (AA-New York Yankees) will focus heavily on the holiday season. All in-game contests will be "For the Kidz" and the Curve will be wearing brand new jerseys to show their support, according to the company.
Fans will have an opportunity to own these unique jerseys. During a "jersey-off-the-back" silent auction, fans can bid on the uniform tops during the game. All proceeds of the auction will benefit the Sheetz Family Charities' "For the Kidz" effort.
The "For the Kidz" night falls on a Two-for-Tuesday promotion day at Blair County Ballpark, when fans can enjoy two-for-one deals on tickets, hot dogs and popcorn.
Last year alone, Sheetz Family Charities—For the Kidz raised more than $350,000 and took more than 3,800 kids shopping during the holiday season, helping children from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina, the company reported. Nearly 4,000 employees from every Sheetz in operation have participated in the shopping days. Since 1992, the charity raised $3.9 million and helped more than 29,000 children.
