Chihuahuas to Host El Paso Strong Night this Saturday

Officials with the El Paso Chihuahuas announced Tuesday that the team would hold an ‘El Paso Strong Night,’ a celebration of the El Paso community and a commemoration of those victims of the August 3rd tragedy.

El Paso Strong Night will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019 when the Chihuahuas take on the Sacramento River Cats (San Francisco Giants affiliate).

A portion of each fundraising ticket sold will go back to the Paso del Norte’s El Paso Victims Fund. The link to the ticket here.  The night’s 50/50 raffle will also benefit the Victims Fund.

The first 7,000 fans through the gates will receive an El Paso Strong rally towel. During the game there will be a special moment of silence for the crowd to “stand united.”

The game will also feature a postgame fireworks spectacular choreographed to music and songs that highlight the city of El Paso.

As part of the night, the Chihuahuas will auction off the caps worn by the San Diego Padres during their August 8th batting practice. All proceeds will benefit the El Paso Victim’s Fund.

The Chihuahuas have partnered with Text to Engage, a local mobile phone auction company for the 2019 season. The mobile auction will begin 12 p.m. Saturday and will conclude at 12 p.m. Tuesday.

The game will also feature the national anthem and the color guard by the Border Patrol, the honoring of first responders and a moment of silence for the victims and their families.

More announcements will be forthcoming.
