The Pirates partnered with ROOT SPORTS to host the Pirates Charities on ROOT SPORTS Auction at PNC Park in the Rivertowne Brewing Hall of Fame Club.
Fans from all around the country were able to participate and bid on premier items and experiences in this live on-air auction during the game.
Thanks to the generosity of Bucs fans everywhere, the event raised $400,000 to support Miracle League programs throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area and Bradenton, Florida.
Fans also had the opportunity to purchase VIP Bags for $125 each. Each bag includes an autographed baseball, Pirates baseball tickets, and an assortment of goodies including Pirates merchandise. Some randomly selected bags will also include vouchers for a variety of premium items.
VIP Bags should arrive to the buyer by early August, 2013.
For $550, fans could purchase a VIP+ bag that includes an authentic Pirates home white or black alternate game jersey autographed by their favorite player!
Due to the customization options associated with VIP+ bags, these bags should arrive to the buyer by the end of September, 2013.
