SF Giants Chinese Heritage Night

Please join us for the first annual West Portal Elementary San Francisco Giants Chinese Heritage night on Tuesday, April 29th. Our incredible SF Chinese Performing Arts teams will perform outside the park before the first pitch AND on the field to open the game!

http://sanfrancisco.giants.mlb.com/sf/ticketing/group_special_events.jsp?group=chinese

You do not need a ticket to perform. However, everyone is welcome to stay for the game and celebrate this historic event with their friends.  We've reserved a block of seats so all of us can sit together.  Tickets are $25 per person.

TICKET SALES ARE NOW CLOSED.

You and your kids are encouraged to invite as many family and friends as they wish to come and enjoy the game together and support SFCPAP as they show off all the skills they have been working so hard to perfect over the past six months.  And to top it off with a performance at ATT PARK in support of the SF Giants!  And then enjoy a baseball game together!

Your ticket buys you a seat in the View Reserve Right Field (subject to change), where we will all enjoy watching the game together.  A portion of the proceeds (as a donation from the SF Giants Foundation) will come back to fund more great programs like this one through the West Portal Parents Club.
