Annual Event Attracts Nearly 800 Children
IronPigs Charities hosted its sixth annual Suites-n-Treats event designed to offer a safe and unique ‘trick-or-treating’ opportunity – as well as other Halloween activities — to both under-privileged and special-needs children in the Lehigh Valley.
Nearly children and 1,300 total guests participated in this year’s event, making it the largest Suites-n-Treats turnout in the event’s history.
The Club Level — and for the first time ever the Clubhouse Level – were utilized this year. Coca-Cola Park suite holders were invited to decorate their suite as the children went door-to-door ‘trick-or-treating.’ Other features included cookie decorating, meeting mascots FeRROUS and FeFe, entertainment from a balloon artist, and much more.
As IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes put it, “This is the IronPigs signature community event and, by far, my favorite charitable function we host at Coca-Cola Park.”
Participating non-profits included: Angel 34 Foundation, Autism Resource Community Hub (ARCH), Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club (Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton), Camelot for Children, Children’s Home of Easton, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Diakon Adoption and Foster Care, Dream Come True, Easter Seals, Good Shepherd LVHN Pediatric Clinic, Make-a-Wish, Miracle League of the LV, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Sixth Street Shelter and Valley Youth House.
IronPigs Charities presented by The Air Products Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit entity of the IronPigs. The mission of IronPigs Charities is to provide educational and recreational opportunities to Lehigh Valley youth. Since its inception in 2007, IronPigs Charities has donated more than $575,000 to the Lehigh Valley community.
