Seats for Soldiers Mixes cars, Baseball, Patriotism
Mix in the fact that the car show outside the Arizona Diamondbacks' Chase Field in downtown Phoenix benefits Arizona military families, and it's a truly patriotic proposition.
The car show, which will be judged by two Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. officials, will start at 3 p.m., about four hours before game time, giving baseball fans plenty of time to take in all the automotive sights.
Donations of $54 to $510 to secure car-show spots will fund tickets to future games for members of the military and their families. Car-show participants receive admission to the 7:10 p.m. game vs. the Minnesota Twins. The show is open to all makes and models of cars. Three categories - best of show, most patriotic and most Diamondbacks spirit - will be judged, with winners receiving tickets to the 2012 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event in Scottsdale.
As a bonus, the first 15,000 fans entering the stadium that day will get garden gnomes decorated to commemorate Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, which takes place in Phoenix on July 12.
Admission: Free. Car-show participants' fee is $54-$510, includes baseball game admission.
