The Pittsburgh Pirates Are Also FTK

Just a short time after it was announced that the Philadelphia Phillies would host a game benefitting THON, the Pittsburgh Pirates have decided to join the party and will one up Philly by hosting tw0 games to benefit the philanthropy and the Four Diamonds Fund.

The games will take place July 2nd and July 3rd, and both are against the in-state rival Philadelphia Phillies. A portion of each ticket purchase using the promo code “PSU” will be donated to THON.

Tickets benefitting THON can be purchased here, and there is no deadline to make the purchase to ensure a donation to THON.  Be sure to buy them sooner than later however as games around July 4th always tend to draw bigger crowds.

“The awareness we receive through events like these is equally important as the money raised,” said THON PR Director Dana Giacobello.

PNC Park is one of the best places to watch a game, and the games will (hopefully) take place before the Pirates’ annual collapse. Plus, what’s a better way to celebrate the beginning of the 4th of July holiday than watching a ball game FTK?
