Bulls to host Bull City Strong Day

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 12:00:00 am

The Durham Bulls will host Bull City Strong Day on May 1 in response to the accidental explosion in downtown Durham on April 10. First responders will receive a complimentary ticket to the 10:35 a.m. contest, and a portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to the Durham One Fund to help rebuild lives impacted by loss, injury and disruption. Bull City Strong Day is presented by Advance Auto Parts and Batteries.

“The accident on April 10 was a terrible thing that happened to our city,” vice president Mike Birling said in a statement. “Luckily this area is blessed with the bravest and most dedicated first responders we could hope for, and their courage saved many lives that day. Bull City Strong Day is just a small token of our appreciation for what they accomplished both on April 10, and what they accomplish every day.”

In addition to complimentary tickets, 200 level tickets and Outfield Reserved tickets will be priced at $10 for the game.
