Purple Community teams up with Lake Michigan Credit Union at the Whitecaps

Posted By

We are just one short week away from Purple Community Night at the West Michigan Whitecaps game on July 26! This fun night presented by Lake Michigan Credit Union will be one you do not want to miss!

The game will be kicked off with a first pitch from Chelsea Westra and her son, Ari. They will be doing so in memory of her husband, Eric, who passed away from Osteosarcoma. Along with family and friends, Chelsea created Eagles for Eric and now raises money for Osteosarcoma research at Van Andel Institute to honor Eric’s memory.

It also happens to be Thrifty Thursday! Beer and hot dogs will be available throughout the evening for only $2 at concession stands.

If you come to the game sporting your purple gear, you could be a lucky winner! Those who stop by our Purple Community booth wearing purple will get to pick something off our prize wall, while supplies last. We will also have our photo booth and props set up to get your purple pictures!

We hope to see you at the game! Purchase your tickets TODAY!
