Entire team to take part in auction for the cause with fan participation
The San Jose Giants have announced that they will host an Ice Bucket Challenge Auction on Thursday, August 21 to benefit the ALS Emergency Treatment Fund. Fans will be able to bid on the opportunity to pour a bucket of ice water on their favorite San Jose Giants player following the final out. If every player receives a bid during Thursday’s game, San Jose Giants’ mascot Gigante will take the Ice Bucket Challenge and nominate three very special friends. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the San Jose-based ALS Emergency Treatment Fund.
“The Ice Bucket Challenge has grabbed the attention of the nation and in the true spirit of Minor League Baseball we want to involve our community to raise awareness and make an impact,” said Juliana Paoli, Chief Marketing Officer of the San Jose Giants. “This auction represents a tremendous opportunity for our fans, the community and the entire San Jose Giants organization to continue the awesome movement begun by Pete Frates and raise funds for the ALS Emergency Treatment Fund.”
