The Brooklyn Cyclones announced that they will have ‘Giving Back Week at MCU Park ‘ starting on August 21-23, as the franchise plans on giving $15,000 to local area charities during a three-game Cyclones homestand when the team takes on the Tri-City Valley Cats. All games begin at 7 p.m.
Fans who wish to participate in ‘Giving Back Week” can do so easily by picking-up tickets during the homestand, in order to do that you need to use the code Donate when purchasing $16 field box tickets via phone or internet. The Cyclones are going to hat $5 from each seat sold to go local area charities combined with revenue from in-house activities including inflatable games, launch-a-ball, and jersey auctions.
The Cyclones will also hold a food drive on August 21, as fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food to MCU Park. All donations will go to the Reaching Out Community Services – a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to the distribution of food and other basic items to needy families and individuals in the Brooklyn area since 1992.
Brooklyn is slated to have a ton of events during the week as on Wednesday, August 22 will be Bark in the Park Night. On that night fans are encouraged to bring a can of dog and or cat food which will be given to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
