Cleveland Indians 2012 "Fill the House for Charity" returns to Progressive Field

CLEVELAND, OH --- The Cleveland Indians community outreach initiative "Fill the House for Charity" returns for the 2012 season. Now featured during 12 Tuesday home games, the Cleveland Indians will partner with a Northeast Ohio non-profit organization to provide much-needed funds and the opportunity to raise awareness for their specific cause.

Each participating non-profit organization will generate revenue through the sale of discounted Indians tickets for their specific game and utilize Progressive Field to share their goodwill message. The Indians will donate $5 per ticket sold by the agency, as well as an additional $1 for every ticket sold on the day of their designated game. Since its inaugural season in 2009, this initiative has raised more than $1.68 million in monetary and in-kind donations for the participating Ohio non-profits.

The 12 “Fill the House” participating service agencies will also receive a variety of event promotions, day of game presence and sales initiative tools such as in-game mentions, in-game check presentation and various auction items to help raise additional funds (suite, autographed items, ceremonial first pitch, etc.). In addition, the Indians will provide promotional support to help raise awareness for the Charity and its event date to include radio and TV network promotions, a webpage dedicated to Fill the House for Charity, inclusion in each game day program (Batter Up!) and a scoreboard feature showcasing the organization.

By attending “Fill the House” Tuesday games during the 2012 season, Tribe fans will be able to share the positive mission of each local non-profit. Enjoy Indians Baseball and support a cause close to your heart—a winning combination!
