Indians, The Volunteer Center at BVU partner on Indians Volunteer Challenge

Cleveland, OH -The Cleveland Indians and The Volunteer Center at BVU again will partner on the Indians Volunteer Challenge, which will reward those who volunteer in the Northeast Ohio community with tickets to select Indians games.

In the four years the Indians and BVU have partnered on the challenge, nearly 20,000 volunteers have performed over 151,398 hours of service in Northeast Ohio; that amounts to the equivalent of $3.35 million worth of service to local nonprofits.

"We remain committed to our community, and through the Indians Volunteer Challenge, our organization and BVU are able to positively impact our region through the many outstanding local nonprofits in the Cleveland area," said Indians Executive Director of Community Impact Rebecca Kodysh.

Volunteers can register for the challenge at BVUVolunteers.org, and search for opportunities with local nonprofits in the Greater Cleveland area. Volunteers can log hours at the same site, and once they reach four hours, they will be mailed an Indians ticket voucher.

Volunteers will receive a ticket voucher good for two Upper Box tickets to one of 24 games during the 2014 season:

  • April: 22, 23
  • May: 4, 5, 6, 18, 30
  • June: 1, 4, 16, 17, 19
  • July: 6, 11, 30, 31
  • August: 12, 13, 17, 22, 24
  • September: 7, 23, 28

Volunteers can redeem their vouchers at the Progressive Field Box Office, Progressive Field Team Shop or online at Indians.com/Volunteer.

Additionally, the Indians and BVU will honor one Indians Volunteer of the Year, who will receive the award for logging the most hours at the end of the Challenge on August 31. The winner will be honored in September at a special pre-game ceremony, and will receive complimentary Field Box tickets and throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch before the game that evening.
