The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks are hosting a “Cheers to Volunteers” Celebration on May 17 when the team hosts Gary SouthShore at Newman Outdoor Field. The game’s first pitch is set for 1 p.m.

The RedHawks will be giving away 4,082 tickets to the game for anyone who helped battle the flood this spring. That number corresponds with the Red River’s record crest of 40.82 feet.

In addition, the first 5,000 flood fighters at the game will receive a T-shirt to commemorate the day and the flood battle.

Local band Carmen The Cactus will play a free postgame concert.

Starting at 10 a.m. on April 25 anyone who helped in the flood can pick up tickets for the May 17 game at the RedHawks ticket office, located in the lower level of Newman Outdoor Field. The RedHawks will continue to give away tickets to the special event until all the free tickets are gone.
