DETROIT (Dec.16, 2014) – Delaware North Sportservice, the exclusive food, beverage and retail services provider for the Detroit Tigers, is seeking charitable organizations/nonprofit groups to participate in its fundraising program in preparation for the 2015 season at Comerica Park.
Delaware North’s recruiting effort is focused on attracting civic organizations, high-school boosters, churches and other nonprofit groups to operate concessions at the stadium – an opportunity that helps to raise funds for the respective organizations.

“This program is an effective and attractive way for organizations to raise money without having to risk investing funds up front,” said Robert Thormeier, Delaware North’s general manager at Comerica Park.
