Peanut/Nut Reduced Zone at Toronto Bluejays Games

Thanks to Debbie Bruce for sending us all the important info and dates for the 2009 Toronto Bluejays games offering a peanut and nut reduced zone. I am cutting and pasting it below for your reference. One game in particular caught my eye--the July 18 game against the Red Sox. What a fun way to catch the Sox away from Fenway for peanut and nut allergic fans. There are six tempting dates this year, including the Yankees, the Red Sox, the White Sox...so act fast! (I do not have the form here, so email Andrew asap if you are interested.)

Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club announce Six Dates
for Peanut/ Nut Reduced Zone at Rogers Centre.
    Thanks to a tremendous response to games in 2008, the Toronto Blue Jays are pleased to once again offer families dealing with life threatening allergies a dedicated, comfortable and safe seating zone from which to enjoy the game. Returning for six games in 2009 is the Peanut/Nut Reduced Zone seating at Rogers Centre.  The games are highlighted by a Boston Red Sox match-up in July and a New York Yankee visit in September. 
     The Executive Lounge, which holds up to 80 people, will be cleaned in advance and devoted to the exclusive use of families who live with peanut/nut and other severe allergies. When the program was first announced in 2008, 40% of tickets for the first three dates sold out in two days. 
     Tickets for the Executive Lounge, located near Gate 3, are $45 per person (tax included). Families will be allowed to bring some approved snacks into the suite, as well as have the option to purchase specially selected food and beverage items. During these games, peanut and nut-based snacks will not be permitted into the Executive Lounge. 
We look forward to sharing the day with you…
