Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- For the second year in a row, the Chicago White Sox will host members of the Marian Catholic High School community including students, alumni, faculty, family, and friends at Guaranteed Rate Field on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Following a pre-game tailgate, Marian Catholic’s Marching Band, a seven-time Bands of America Grand National Champion and 38-consecutive Class 3A State Champion, will march into Guaranteed Rate Field with a parade of Marian Catholic supporters marching behind them. Any fan that purchases a ticket from Marian Catholic will be able to march in the warning track parade around the field. The marching band will then get the evening started by playing the Star-Spangled Banner from center field.

Members of the Marian Catholic community will enjoy the game from lower box and right field bleacher seats. As a gesture of community support, a portion of each ticket sold will be donated back to Marian Catholic for scholarships and financial aid.
