Peanut and Tree Nut Allergy Safe Baseball Alert: The Chicago White Sox First Ever "Nut Allergy Awareness" Game, April 20th 2013

It's not too late to get your tickets for the Chicago White Sox 2013: Nut Allergy Awareness Game! I just heard from a rep for the White Sox and they have seats still available. If you're a Chicago White Sox fan, you won't want to miss this event that creates a safe space for your peanut and/or tree nut allergic child to enjoy a good old-fashioned baseball game on the South Side!

The info regarding this game was originally sent to me by Judy T., a Nut-Free Mom blog reader and baseball fan. Thanks, Judy, for the info! And thanks also to Dustin Milliken and the Chicago White Sox for creating this event! The game is on a Saturday, so hopefully, many of you can make it!

White Sox are pleased to announce the first Nut Allergy Awareness Game

The game is scheduled for April 20 at 2:05 PM and is against the Minnesota Twins. There will be three sections with "limited exposure" to peanuts/nuts.

Please join us, on Saturday April 20th when the White Sox play the Minnesota Twins at US Cellular Field. There will be a special designated area in the club level for anybody with a nut allergy and their family and friends. No nuts or anything containing nuts will be allowed in the special seating area. There will also be a special food table in the area featuring foods that do not contain nut products. There will also be food options for people with milk and egg allergies.

In addition to the specially priced tickets, each family that purchases tickets will be eligible to win 1 of 2 autographed White Sox Items. These winners will be selected randomly and will receive their autographed item on the day of the game.

All of the information you will need is attached. You will need to send back a waiver for each person that has a nut allergy with the order form. If you have questions, please feel free to call Dustin Milliken at 312-674-5186 or email at Dmilliken@chisox.com
