As many as 1 in 50 people are at risk for anaphylaxis which is a severe, rapidly progressive, potentially life threatening allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis can occur from a variety of substances such as foods, medications, or insect venoms. Signs of anaphylaxis can include hives, swelling, shortness of breath, coughing, dizziness, low blood pressure or passing out. People are not born allergic to these substances but can become susceptible to developing an allergy after exposure.
Come join us Tuesday, May 1st at the Joe when we celebrate our 3rd Peanut Free Night with the RiverDogs! We couldn’t be more excited for our annual event! The entire park will be cleaned of any peanut residue so peanut allergic families can come and enjoy America’s favorite past time. This is a big deal for many families who are unable to safely enjoy simple events. It’s scary and overwhelming when your children have a life-threatening allergy and we’re grateful for the RiverDogs for making this fun night possible!
“The RiverDogs will take the opportunity to celebrate cleanliness and friendliness on May 1st with the celebration of the World’s Cleanest Ballpark,” said Assistant General Manager, Ben Abzug. “In association with Charleston Asthma & Allergy on Peanut-Free Night, the RiverDogs will take every extra effort to ensure a spotless ballpark on that night,” Abzug added, “with a top-to-bottom cleaning prior to the game, inning-by-inning cleanings, and fun interactive games with fans to help keep The Joe beautiful!
There will be lots of fun eats and drinks, all peanut free, of course! Plus, fun games and giveaways all night long! Gates open at 6 p.m. with the RiverDogs taking on the Asheville Tourists at 7:05 p.m. Children 3 and under are free.
