Article: "SF Hep B Free Campaign Continues Partnership with San Francisco Giants"

May 2008

The SF Giants have been a cornerstone in the history of San Francisco for many years and will be celebrating Asian cultures and communities during Asian Heritage Week at AT&T Park.

In partnership with AsianWeek and the SF Hep B Free Campaign, the Giants will hold a number of unique events to highlight the rich traditions and cultures of Bay Area Asian populations. The Chinese, Korean, and Japanese communities will each have their own designated night at AT&T Park featuring promotional items, special ticket offers, entertainment and educational programs.

The San Francisco Hep B Free Campaign will be present at each game to educate fans about the importance of testing and vaccinating Asian Pacific Islanders for hepatitis B. Liver cancer presents the greatest health disparity between Asian Americans and the general population. Assemblywoman Fiona Ma and Giants first baseman Travis Ishikawa will carry this important message in a public service announcement that will be played at the ballpark and highlighted during homeplate ceremony. Travis Ishikawa will be featured on resource cards containing facts about hepatitis B on the back, and information about SF Hep B Free will be displayed on the scoreboard and on the clubhouse televisions throughout the game.

A special $20 ticket package is available for each of the heritage games and includes a limited edition giveaway and guaranteed seats in the designated heritage seating sections. Tickets for all events can be purchased by calling (415) 972-2298 or visit the links listed below. Partial proceeds of the tickets sold through this website will go to the SF Hep B Free Campaign.
