From the Reno Aces:
The Reno Aces are holding an online auction to benefit Elisa Storkes, a University of Nevada English professor who was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in November, the club announced today.
The auction begins today and ends Monday, Jan. 27 at 11:59 p.m. The winner will receive a package that includes a ceremonial first pitch, four infield reserved tickets and a signed Brett Butler 2013 game-worn hat featuring the Triple-A All-Star logo. The ceremonial first pitch and game tickets are valid for any Aces regular season home game, with the exception of Opening Day and July 4.
Storkes, a new mother who welcomed her first child last May, has cancer of the bones, blood, spine, liver, adrenal glands, lungs and brain. The money raised through the auction will be donated directly to the fund set up to benefit the family, and will be used for medical costs and transportation costs.
Donations can also be made through the You Caring site set up in Elisa's name, at https://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-elisa-beat-cancer-elisa-s-angels-/120594, or through Wells Fargo account #1459741110.
The Aces kick off the 2014 season at home on April 3 by hosting the El Paso Chihuahuas, the newest Pacific Coast League franchise. First pitch is slated for 6:35 p.m. Discounted full and partial season tickets are on sale now. For more information, and to purchase an Aces ticket plan, call (775) 334-4700.
