White Sox host Allergy Awareness Day presented by Mylan Specialty L.P.
Reserved seating area will provide haven for fans who have potentially life-threatening nut allergies

CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox will host an Allergy Awareness Day, presented by Mylan Specialty L.P., on Saturday, June 29 at 3:10 p.m. against the Cleveland Indians.
To provide fans who have potentially life-threatening nut allergies with the safest environment possible, no nuts, nor anything containing nuts, will be allowed or sold in three reserved sections of the Club Level at U.S. Cellular Field. The concession stands closest to those special sections will not sell nuts and the area will be meticulously cleaned and inspected prior to the game.
“This is another example of us responding to fan feedback,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Hopefully, some of our fans and families who typically could not attend a White Sox home game due to potential allergic reactions will be able to enjoy an afternoon of White Sox baseball at U.S. Cellular Field.”
The tickets are specially priced at $40 and include the option to buy $10 in “Bonus Bux” that can be used to buy food and beverage at any permanent club level concession stand. There are approximately 200 seats available, so fans are encouraged to order tickets early. Fans also have the opportunity to purchase Red Lot parking, which is close to the recommended entrance location.
For the least nut-exposed path to the game, the club suggests entering through the Chicago Sports Depot near Gate 5 on the north side of 35th Street. From the second level exit of the store, escalators lead up to a bridge over the street which ends at the Club Level concourse.
Fans interested in purchasing tickets and seating in the peanut-free section should email or call Dustin Milliken at email@example.com or (312) 674-5186.
