Bella Tucker Fundraiser Wednesday

July 30, 2010 - Eastern League (EL) - New Hampshire Fisher Cats News Release


MANCHESTER - The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, are proud to announce a fundraiser for Bella Tucker on Wednesday, August 18th at MerchantsAuto.com Stadium. The first 5,000 fans get a Kyle Drabek no-hitter poster courtesy of Spectrum Printing.

Please join us on Aug. 18, at MerchantsAuto.com Stadium as the Fisher Cats take on the Binghamton Mets, and help us raise funds and awareness for 8-year-old Bella, who has a long road to recovery ahead of her.

Bella,who attends South School Elementary in Londonderry, came down with a near fatal infection in April. With little hope for survival, Bella beat the odds after five days in a coma, but the infection caused extensive damage and she had to undergo quadruple amputation surgery on April 27, forever changing her life. Bella faces an extremely long and hard recovery, with extensive rehabilitation to follow as she learns to live life without her limbs.

The Fisher Cats are generously donating part of the proceeds from ticket sales to the Bella Tucker Fund, established to assist Bella and provide any special needs she may require. Also, the Fisher Cats Foundation has kicked off the fundraising with a generous donation of $1,000.

"As an organization, it's a privilege to be able to contribute to the community and in this case directly to Bella," said Fisher Cats President Rick Brenner. "We encourage our fans to participate in supporting this very worthy cause."

You can purchase your tickets for the game on Aug.18, and $3 from every Field and Box seat, and $4 from every premium seat sold using the promotional code BELLA, Bella or bella, will go to Bella's Fund.

Team Bella will also be holding a bake sale on the concourse of MerchantsAuto.com Stadium throughout the game, and selling raffle tickets throughout the park. The raffle prizes include two sets of two round trip Jet Blue airline tickets to anywhere Jet Blue flies in the U.S., a baseball signed by all the Fisher Cats, a luxury suite at MerhcnatsAuto.com for one night with two parking passes, as well as tickets to Fisher Cats games.

So please come out for another great night at the ballpark, while helping us to help a special little girl.
