The Fill the House for Charity initiative held its 12th and final date of 2012 at Progressive Field Tuesday night when the program welcomed Coats for Kids as the night’s charity partner.
The 2012 season was a big success for the Fill the House program as it continued to be an important fundraising vehicle for its twelve charity partners. In 2012, the Indians raised a total of over $500,000 in donations and in-kind value through the Fill the House program.
Each participating non-profit receives $1 from every ticket sold on their designated night, and $5 from tickets they sell on their own. The organizations are also provided the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch, have an honorary ball-boy representative, and promote their mission throughout the ballpark.
On Tuesday, July 24, the Indians made the largest single donation in the history of the program as the team raised $54,070 in one night for Guidestone.
The Fill the House program was started in 2009 and has raised over $2 million in monetary and in-kind donations for participating Ohio non-profits since its inception.
