Auburn Doubledays Announces Fan Contest to Help Bring Back Special Olympics New York Fall Games

AUBURN, NY – The Auburn Doubledays today announced a fan contest to help bring back Special Olympics New York State Fall Games.

Fans who donate $10 to the campaign and challenge 10 friends to donate $10 on social media using the hashtag #DOUBLEDAYSGIVESBACK will be entered to win VIP Experience including throwing out the first pitch, autographed team ball, $50 Doubleday Gift Card and 4 tickets to an Auburn Doubledays game. With each $10 donation with the hashtag #DOUBLEDAYSGIVESBACK, the fan will receive two vouchers for a game during the Doubledays 2020 season.



Special Olympics New York Fall Games were eliminated four years ago due to a lack in funding, leaving 19,000 fall sports athletes without an opportunity to compete at the statewide level. The organization, which serves children and adults with intellectual disabilities, aims to bring back Fall Games as it celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020. “This is a great opportunity to bring the Special Olympics New York Fall Games back and provide opportunities for athletes to participate and compete along with establishing lifelong friendships,” said Auburn Doubledays General Manager Adam Winslow. “The absence of Fall Games has been a significant disappointment for our athletes, families and coaches, and has resulted in a decrease in overall participation in our sports programs, which can be life changing,” said Special Olympics New York President & CEO Stacey Hengsterman. “We’re so thankful to the Auburn Doubledays and its fans for supporting our campaign to bring back Fall Games, returning this vital opportunity to our athletes in 2020.”  To be entered to win, fans are asked to “Give $10, Get 10” by copy and pasting or personalizing the posts below into their status on social media: Facebook I just donated $10 to bring back Fall Games for @SpecialOlympicsNewYork athletes.
