Concerns over local health and safety persuade Whitecaps Community Foundation to choose later date

Comstock Park, MI – Thursday, January 13, 2022

  • The annual Whitecaps Winter Gala presented by Eastbrook Homes, celebrating “The Golden Age of Baseball,” will be moved to a later date due to concerns about the continued rise in Covid-19 numbers. Proceeds benefit the YMCA Ted Rasberry Youth League and the Detroit Tigers Foundation, an affiliate of Ilitch Charities
  • “In the interest of our fans, we feel strongly this is not a good time to hold the event,” said Whitecaps Community Relations Manager Jenny Garone. “We’ll move the event to later in the year when we can gather more safely.”
  • The Whitecaps are contacting all who have tickets to discuss their ticket options for the event. More details about the rescheduled date will be announced soon. If you have questions about the event being postponed you may call (616) 784-4131.
