, a unique nonprofit organization that provides financial and social assistance to families with a child battling cancer, in partnership with Texas Rangers Baseball Club are hosting the 2016 Childhood Cancer Awareness Night at Globe Life Park in Arlington next month. The event is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 2 beginning at 7:05 p.m.
Unfortunately, 1,960 children die of cancer every year in the United States every year. Family finances are drained as they struggle to fight the deadly disease. They spend an average of $40,000 per hospital stay for a child with cancer, not including out-of–pocket expenses like food, travel and accommodation.
These are a few of the reasons why Heroes for Children, in partnership with Texas Rangers Baseball Club, recognizes National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September by inviting supporters of Heroes for Children and families served by Heroes for Children to enjoy an evening at the ballpark while raising funds for childhood cancer.
A friendly competition will be held between all participating nonprofit organizations to sell the most tickets; the organization that reaches the highest ticket sales by Aug. 26 will be awarded all fundraising proceeds.
Tickets are available from $16-$53; a portion of the proceeds will be given to the local nonprofit supporting childhood cancer that sells the most by Aug. 26.
