The fundraising event takes place Wednesday, September 26th, 7:05 p.m. at Comerica Park. The Tigers will be playing the Minnesota Twins in the last game before the playoff race begins.

For every $20.00 ticket sold on behalf of HCCS, the Tigers will donate $5 to the non-profit organization. Tickets can be obtained by calling Laura Corbett at (586) 619-2160 x 310. Donations of $40.00 to send a Holy Cross kid and his chaperone to the game are also encouraged.

"We are excited to announce our joint effort with the Detroit Tigers in a fundraiser for Holy Cross that involves employees and their families, friends, our business community and most importantly, the HCCS kids," says Greg Longe and AFS partner and co-founder John Lynch. AFS will match every dollar donated by the Detroit Tigers.
