The Cardinals will take on the Oakland A’s on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 1:15 p.m. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.

The ticket price for the event is $20, which includes a free hot dog and soda coupon. A portion of each ticket sold goes directly to Lindenwood student scholarships.

Kate O’Neal, assistant vice president for Development and Alumni Relations, says that 400 tickets are sold per season, and the school receives $6 from each one, raising $2,400 for student scholarships.

Tickets for this event are on sale now and can only be purchased in O’Neal’s office, located at the Development Office near the pavilion.

“Tickets sell out fairly quickly,” said O’Neal, “I currently have 32 tickets left.”

For more information about the event, contact O’Neal at 636-949-4903.
