SAN FRANCISCO — Japanese Heritage Night with the San Francisco Giants will be held on Friday, June 3, at AT&T Park during a home game against the Colorado Rockies.
In the wake of the recent tragedies that have hit Japan, the Giants are dedicating this season’s Japanese Heritage Night to the memories of those lost, and to the support of those working to rebuild. Proceeds from each special event ticket will be donated directly to the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, and Giants staff will be on hand on the day of the game to collect additional donations from fans who would like to contribute further to the cause.
With your special event ticket, your seat for the game will be in one of the Japanese Heritage sections, to create a community bond between members of the Japanese and Japanese American community and their supporters in a show of solidarity.
Additionally, all special event ticket holders will receive a special-edition Sumo Lou Seal bobblehead. Arrive early for a pregame fundraising festival in Seals Plaza, with cultural performers and Japanese food and drink specials. Stay tuned for additional information on ways in which the Giants will support Japan and the relief efforts.
The event is being held in partnership with JACL, Japanese Community Youth Council, Nakayoshi, and Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California.
This year’s special event tickets are dynamically priced. Ticket prices will increase s the event approaches. To buy tickets or for more information, call (415) 972-2298 or visit www.sfgiants.com/specialevents.
