Wise County 4-Hers are encouraged to spread the word that discounted tickets are on sale now for the first-ever Texas 4-H “Green Out” event to kick off the 2010-2011 4-H year with the Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics on Aug. 28 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. There is a pre-game concert by MercyMe, presented by I Am Second. This will be a fun-filled day of family, friends and fellowship for all to enjoy.
Every ticket holder will receive a free, one-of-a-kind Green Out T-shirt with the Rangers and 4-H logo (To receive your Green Out T-shirts, tickets must be purchased by Aug. 13). The first 8,500 Texas Rangers fans will also receive a red Rangers T-shirt.
Every county and 4-H club has the opportunity to sell Green Out tickets as a fundraiser for their county 4-H program. Prizes will be awarded for the member, club and county 4-H that sells the most tickets. The Texas Rangers organization has been gracious enough to not only give us a discounted ticket rate, but are also giving $3 back for every ticket purchased to the county 4-H program that sells tickets.
The more tickets you sell, the more money you can make for Wise County 4-H. Ticket order forms are available at the Extension office, or visit the Texas 4-H website at www.texas4hfoundation.org to download the information.
We challenge you to sell as many tickets as possible so we can officially “Green Out” the Ballpark. This is our opportunity to promote our organization.
