We”re delighted to report that this year”s “Jerry Week” celebrations in San Francisco, August 1-9, culminate at AT&T Park with a ballpark tribute to Jerry Garcia benefiting the Rex Foundation. Here”s the official word from the San Francisco Giants, who face off against the Chicago Cubs that evening.
Come to the ballpark to celebrate the life and times of legendary musician and San Francisco Native Jerry Garcia! Garcia was born in San Francisco in 1942, and grew up in the city”s Excelsior District, before becoming a founding member of the iconic rock band The Grateful Dead. This event at the ballpark concludes a week long celebration of Jerry”s life, starting with “Jerry Day” at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in McLaren Park on August 1st. Your special event ticket package includes a seat in the Jerry Garcia tribute section for the August 9th game against the Cubs, and a limited-edition Jerry Garcia bobblehead. Grateful Dead tribute bands will perform prior to the game, and members of the Garcia family will be on hand to throw out the first pitch. Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Rex Foundation; a Grateful Dead founded charity promoting good in the community. Come support a great cause and celebrate the life of a San Francisco legend!
