The only thing better than watching the San Francisco Giants play at AT&T Park is watching the game while celebrating a cause or culture near and dear to your heart.
During June, you can have that opportunity by purchasing Special Events tickets to select San Francisco Giants home games.
Special Events ticketholders receive free Giants-themed gear designed exclusively for the event, seating in a special area of the park and, for some events, access to pre- or post-game shindigs. For events honoring specific causes, a portion of each ticket's proceeds will be donated to a reputable charity.
Tickets are still available for June's remaining Special Event games. Cast your eye on the June calendar to find the right match for you.
