On Friday, August 4ththe Garden Homes Fire Protection District is teaming up with the Windy City Thunderbolts to raise funds to support our operations. GHFPD gets a portion of every $10 ticket we sell and we will also be the recipient of the “Split” in the Split the Pot Raffle that night as well.

If a summer night, minor league baseball, and supporting your local fire department isn’t enough of an enticement, the Thunderbolts are running multiple promotions that evening:

  1. $3 U Call Its – any beer or well mixed drink is only $3;
  2. $1.50 Budweiser Beer Special;
  3. Camp Out Night – after the game you can set up a stake-less tent in the outfield enjoy a late-night movie, snacks and refreshments provided by the team. After sleeping under the stars, a light breakfast will be served to all campers before leaving; and,
  4. kids run the bases after the game. 

The game starts at 7:05 PM, all tickets are $10, and the Thunderbolts allow tailgating before the game.

If you are interested in attending and helping out the GHFPD, you have four options to get tickets

  1. Contact a member of the department;
