Take Me Up To The Ball Game!
Last year’s partnership with the Atlanta Braves was a success and helped
us raise over $1,500 for the GA Chapter of the ALS Association. This year
we plan on something even more special and very official – Dragon*Con
Night at Turner Field. The Atlanta Braves are hosting Dragon*Con Night
against the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, August 29 with a portion of the
ticket sales going to the 2013 official Dragon*Con charities: Noah’s Ark
Animal Sanctuary, Georgia Conservancy, and Marcus Autism Center. Tickets
start at just $7. First pitch will be thrown by a special D*C guest and
in–game entertainment will be “geeked up” all night. Come dressed up
because all costumed guests are invited to join in a pre–game parade
around the field!
Bus transportation will be provided from host hotels starting at 4:30pm
with the pre–game parade starting around 6:00pm.

Dragon*Con is almost here and the hotels are filling up faster than a

this spectacular Atlanta landmark.
