|UND partners with Minnesota Twins for UND Day at the Dome|
UND is hosting "UND Day at the Dome" August 29 at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The event is open to UND alumni, students, future students, families, supporters and friends.
The event features reduced price tickets, a free pre-game ballpark lunch, UND President Robert O. Kelley throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, the UND Varsity Bards singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch, UND Deans and faculty, and the Twins playing the Texas Rangers.
The pre-game picnic begins at 3 p.m. in the picnic area (Gate D) of the Metrodome and the game begins at 6:10 p.m. Special reduced ticket prices are $15 (face value $22) for upper club and $24 for lower reserved (face value $33). The Twins will donate a portion of each ticket sold to support UND.
"I can't imagine a more pleasant site than seeing the Minnesota Twins red, white and blue coupled with University of North Dakota green. There is no question that UND is in the heart of Twins Territory and we can't wait to host the University's contingent at the Metrodome this Summer," said UND graduate Dave St. Peter, the President of the Minnesota Twins.
UND President Robert O. Kelly adds, "This is a great way for UND to involve our Twin Cities friends, alumni, and students with our outstanding faculty in a fun atmosphere. The fact that the President of the Twins is a UND graduate makes this partnership even more logical. We look forward to seeing our UND friends from all over 'Twins Territory' at the Metrodome on August 29."
Tickets are available by calling 800-33-TWINS (89467). For more information regarding the UND Day at the Dome, visit the UND Alumni Website at http://www.undalumni.org and follow the UND Day at the Dome link or contact Mitch Kluska of the Twins at 612-375-7436.
