ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The St. Louis Cardinals, in collaboration with second baseman Kolten Wong and his wife, Alissa, announced the team will sell specially-priced $15 tickets to the Sunday, May 20, game against the Philadelphia Phillies to help those impacted by the Kilauea volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in Kolten’s native state of Hawaii. Fans can purchase the specially-priced tickets now at cardinals.com/Hawaii.

For every one of these $15 tickets purchased, $10 will be donated to the Wongs` relief efforts aiding the American Red Cross and local accredited organizations working to rebuild the impacted areas on the Big Island and help the thousands of families who have been displaced due to flowing lava.

“The events in Hawaii have left many island residents and visitors in need of emergency assistance,” said Kolten. “It`s at times like this that we must kōkua (help) and come together as an extended `ohana (family) to help those in need. I am very thankful to the Cardinals organization for helping us raise money for the many families that have already been adversely affected by this natural disaster.”

The May 20 game also features a Rawlings Kids Baseball Glove promotional giveaway for all kids ages 15 and under entering with a ticket.

Fans wanting to support the cause, but unable to attend the May 20 game can visit Kolten’s GoFundMe Page, or can click on the ‘Make a Donation’ link at cardinals.com/Hawaii.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
