That is great news!!! I wish all the other sports franchises would do the same. Happy birthday to John, I hope he has a terrific birthday celebration 🙂

Happy Birthday John! I urge everyone to forward this to the head of their local baseball ticket sales department!!!

Enjoy the game, and happy birthday to John! This is such a nice event for a major league baseball team to host. I am in MN, and I have to say that the MN Twins have been fantastic with peanut free games, hosting 4 peanut free games per season. Hopefully these events can catch on so all kids have the option of attending a baseball game.

As a Cubs fan, I am thrilled by this! Unfortunately, we are not able to attend but I tried to send an email of support. The email was returned to me as undeliverable. Just wanted to double check the email address listed. Thanks!

This is great news! I wish it was publicized more so more people could learn about it. We can’t attend this one, but will send our letter of support. Thanks!

YAWN! If Ricketts would spend his time building a better baseball team rather than cheap ballpark publicity gimmicks like this, we would be better off. By the way, my sister has serious peanut allergies and she has never had any problems at Wrigley in her life.
CBOE And Cubs Are Losers August 24th, 2010 at 5:27 am
This is great! I hope the Chicago area families will support this. I would buy tickets but I live in Canada. I would like to send an email of support. Can someone help me with an email address?

I agree with CBOE and Cubs are Losers. Tickets are available everywhere for cents on the dollar (stubhub, craigslist, ebay…) and the Cubs still have the audacity to charge $50 for this event? Even with food and drinks included $50 is a travesty. What’s the average kid going to consume?($10 worth of hot dogs and pepsi) They can’t sell out the box, which is THE ONLY REASON THIS OFFER EXISTS. Offer it to people that normally can’t attend games and it’s great PR and they’ll sell out. If they were really concerned they would charge a reasonable price- like $20-$25. I’m not trying to sound unsympathetic to people with this condition, but this is not an example of the Cubs being charitable. They don’t know what charity means. They’re all about raping and pillaging their fans.
Cubs management rapes the Fans August 24th, 2010 at 7:38 am
Thanks for the post, Kelly! We are so excited to go to a game and take Finn with us! I spoke to Samantha at the Cubs office, and she was so nice and almost as excited as I was that we could go to a game as a family. Congratulations on the Sun Times article as well!
