Just in time for baseball season: Find Me Gluten Free, the most downloaded gluten-free smartphone app, and Gluten Free Frenzy, a GF giveaway site, have just launched free Gluten-Free Awareness Pregame Parties at ballgames across the country. “We are creating pre-game expos for people to be able to check out local vendors and products,” said Darin Alpert, business development director for Find Me Gluten Free. “It’s pretty exciting.”
So far, they’ve lined up these teams and dates:
- Arizona Diamondbacks, May 25
- Colorado Rockies (go team!), June 9
- San Diego Padres, July 7
- Los Angeles Dodgers, August 25
Planning to head to the Diamondback game, for example? You can buy discounted tickets using the promo code “celiac.” Then, at this and future pregame GF Awareness events, you’ll get to sample tons of tons of gluten-free goodies for free, plus enjoy a DJ, raffle, and even a chance to upgrade your seats. A portion of proceeds will be split between the Celiac Disease Foundation, Celiac Sprue Association, Gluten Intolerance Group, and National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.
I’m psyched to see gluten free gaining a presence in my favorite spectator sport. Here’s my grateful shout-out to Find Me Gluten Free and Gluten Free Frenzy for this home run.
