Community Happenings

Fundraising opportunities at PNC Park
Looking for a great way to raise funds? Aramark at PNC Park is currently seeking nonprofit organizations to become In-Seat Stand Vendors for the 2016 Pirates Baseball Season

Vendors walk the concourse, seating bowl and public areas of PNC Park and sell beer, water, soft drinks, cotton candy, peanuts, cracker jacks, hot dogs, pretzels and other items. Each vendor is assigned a particular product to sell for each game. Each member of the nonprofit is guaranteed a minimum payout for each game worked, and Aramark will write one check to the nonprofit.

To participate, nonprofits must be listed as “active” with the IRS and have 501 (c)(3) status, and vendors must be able to lift 50 pounds and walk up and down steps. Vendors are needed for most every Pirates Home Game! Questions? Call 412.325.4470 or email catley-robert@aramark.com.
