PRESS RELEASE – One season after dedicating a POW/MIA seat in honor of all those soldiers who never returned home, the Lowell Spinners (Class-A Affiliate of the Boston Red Sox) will partner with the WWII Foundation on a night to salute more of our heroes with “Band of Brothers” Bobble Head Giveaway Night Tuesday, July 2.
The night will include Bobble Heads for the first 1,000 fans through the gates courtesy of US Family Health Plan, as well as a pre-game Meet & Greet with Private Philip P. Perugini of Easy Company, all to benefit the WWII Foundation and their efforts to preserve the stories and salute the sacrifices of the WWII generation.
“The sacrifices of the men and women of the WWII generation are directly responsible for the lives we live today,” said Spinners President and General Manager Tim Bawmann. To have Mr. Perugini be able to come to a Spinners game and share some of the incredible stories of his service and to be able to honor those who served is a privilege we are pleased to share in.”
The bobble head doll fans will receive is meant to portray an infantry soldier from the period. In addition to the bobble head itself, fans will have the opportunity to purchase special commemorative Band of Brothers bats at the game itself, with each bat sold benefiting the WWII foundation 100 percent.
“We specifically tried to make the face of the bobble head as generic as possible,” said Bawmann. “We didn’t want to recognize just one soldier, rather we wanted to salute all those who sacrificed so much.”
In addition to the basic game ticket, the Spinners are also holding a special pre-game meet & greet BBQ event, where each fan is guaranteed a bobble head and will have the chance to meet Mr. Perugini. Tickets for this event cost $40 and include a game ticket plus all-you-can-eat in the Lowell Sun Gator Pit BBQ before the game.
All ticket packages can be ordered now at http://www.LowellSpinners.com or through the Spinners Box Office at (978) 459-1702.
