The 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo are fast approaching. To celebrate baseball’s re-introduction to the Games, Tickets.com teamed up with Special Olympics New York, inviting more than 20 fans to enjoy a professional baseball game as guests of the T.Cares program.
Special Olympics New York provides all-year-round sports training and athletic competitions in a variety of Olympic-style sports for all children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Athletes gain confidence and build a positive self-image which carries into the classroom, the home, the workplace, and the community.
In support of their 6,000 competitions, the Special Olympics organization hosted more than 200 fundraising activities throughout the year.
Partnering with Special Olympics New York in August, Tickets.com invited more than 20 athletes to witness a Buffalo Bisons baseball game. Among the T.Cares guests were Randy and Paris, who enjoyed their first-ever live baseball experience.
Randy said it was “exciting and fun,” and Paris appreciated sharing the entire experience with her “Special Olympics family.”
Randy, Paris, and fellow T.Cares guests enjoyed a Bisons victory, 5-4 over the Toledo Mud Hens—another T.Cares success joining with like-minded community organizations to create unique and memorable experiences for fans.
