Cleveland, OH— The Cleveland Indians, first baseman Mike Napoli, fan Nate Crowe and T-shirt company 108 Stitches will donate a combined $120,000 in proceeds from sales of “Party at Napoli’s” T-shirts to Cleveland Clinic Children’s and VeloSano in a pregame ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
The shirts grew in popularity after Crowe, a Tribe Season Ticket Holder, brought a “Party at Napoli’s” sign to an early season game. The Indians worked with 108 Stitches, Napoli and Crowe to design the shirts, and they’ve been flying off the shelves since – over 9,000 shirts have been sold at the Progressive Field Team Shop and on www.108Stitches.com.
Napoli matched a portion of proceeds from T-shirt sales, and Crowe also made a donation, in addition to the Tribe and 108 Stitches’ donations.
Party at Napoli’s celebrity bartending event Sunday night A very limited number of tickets remain for Sunday night’s Party at Napoli’s celebrity bartending event at The Corner at Progressive Field, after the Tribe finishes its series with the Marlins.
Napoli, Jason Kipnis, Terry Francona and more will be on hand to serve beverages (cash bar) at The Corner. Tickets are $75 and include a limited-edition red Party at Napoli’s shirt. There also will be silent auction items available, including a Batting Practice Experience that includes a meet-and-greet with Napoli. Ticket proceeds benefit Cleveland Clinic Children’s, VeloSano and Cleveland Indians Charities.
