BlueClaws holding Willy Wonka style race for you to get first look at new initiative
Do you have a BlueClaws Golden Ticket? You'll want one.
The Philadelphia Phillies Low-A affiliate announced an online sweepstakes on Monday in the style of Willy Wonka where four lucky fans will be able to earn admission to a VIP event at historic Convention Hall in Asbury Park (at 5:30 pm) where a "Major Franchise Announcement" will be made by the team.
One of the winners will also earn a special package featuring 2021 BlueClaws season tickets.
This isn't an event coming up where anybody can attend, just those with a ticket.
“We are very excited to share the news, something that has been in the works for some time,” Lakewood BlueClaws Team President Joe Ricciutti said in a statement Monday. “But we promise, it’s an announcement that everyone around the Shore can get behind!”
You can enter the VIP Sweepstakes online by clicking here and keep in mind that only online entries will be accepted.
You have until Wednesday, October 14 to submit your entry.
Four winners will be selected and each of the four will win tickets (for child and parent) to the October 21 event at Convention Hall.
If you win, you'll be introduced to the crowd and one will win a grand prize that includes 2021 BlueClaws season tickets, tickets to all public in-stadium events in 2021, a BlueClaws jersey with their name on the back and a ceremonial first pitch on Opening Night 2021 (date TBA).
Each will also actively participate in the event.
Winners will be contacted on October 15th.
“The four winners will forever be a part of BlueClaws history,” Ricciutti said. “We can’t wait to welcome them on October 21st.”
Good luck everyone!
