In-state rivals clash to support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
We are heading to the Kauffman Tire Spring Classic for Kids at Turner Field on Tuesday, April 23 as Georgia and Georgia Tech meet in this annual neutral-site showdown. With more than 20,000 tickets sold each year, the Kauffman Tire Spring Classic is one of the highest-attended regular season NCAA baseball games every season.
Proceeds from the event benefit the pediatric research of the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Neurosciences Program. The Children's Neurosciences Program collaborates with other institutions to discover preventative and curative strategies for children with serious medical illnesses or challenges.
“We support the Spring Classic for Kids because it’s such a positive event for the community,” said Mark Kauffman, President of Kauffman Tire. “Our company is proud to be affiliated with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, an organization committed to providing the best possible care for Atlanta’s families.”
Fans can also support Children’s and their favorite team through the Text-to-Give Challenge. A $10 donation can be made by texting either ‘TECH’ or ‘DAWGS’ to 50555.
This is a one-time donation, and the school with the most texts will be announced during the game.
This is the second of three meetings between Georgia and Georgia Tech this season. The Yellow Jackets defeated the Bulldogs 7-5 in Athens on April 9, and they will meet again May 14 at Russ Chandler Stadium. Georgia leads the Kauffman Tire Spring Classic series with a 7-3 record.
General admission tickets are $12. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.choa.org/springclassic. Tickets are also available at Turner Field the day of the event. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
