Put it on your calendar: This year's Lutheran Night at the TinCaps is set for Saturday, August 29. The game starts at 7:05 p.m. You won't want to miss the fireworks, ZOOperstars, and more!Like last season, the Tin Caps will donate $1 from each ticket sold in advance (no later than July 17) to a worthy cause. This year's recipient is Lutheran Social Services of Indiana's Cup of Kindness program. Cup of Kindness provides case management, financial assistance such as help with heating costs during cold winter months, help with budgeting, and prayer.New to this year, we're also teaming up with Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County to conduct a food drive during Lutheran Night at the TinCaps. Please bring some nonperishable food items to the game to donate to the Associated Churches Neighborhood Food Network. Because of drives such as the one we're planning, the Neighborhood Food Network was able to serve 1,629,105 meals in 2014 alone!Your help could have a large impact on the success of this Lutheran Night at the TinCaps. Attached is a flyer with the information for this season's event. Last season, you helped raise more than $2,000 for the Lutheran SGO of Indiana. We hope to top that amount this year, but we can't do it without your helpPlease remember that you must order your tickets by July 17 to generate the donation from the TinCaps. Advance orders will also be entered in the early-bird drawing for chances at autographed team apparel, $50 gift certificates, and the opportunity to throw out a first pitch.If you have any questions or need more information, don't hesitate to call Justin Schurley at (260) 407-2808.
