Season ticket holders will receive a letter with their 2002 tickets explaining the program and how they can donate Giants tickets they are unable to use. All donated tickets will go to family members of those who died in the September 11 attacks. Donations may be tax deductible.
"This is a good opportunity to enable families of the victims of the attacks of September 11 to attend Giants games," said John Mara, the Giants Executive Vice President and General Counsel. "We wanted to give our fans the opportunity to do something meaningful with tickets that might otherwise go unused since we realize not all of our fans can attend each and every game."
The Gift of New York is a not-for-profit initiative that provides access, at no cost, to theatrical, artistic, cultural, sports and live entertainment venues to the families of those who died on September 11. The concept was originated by Andrea Bronfman and Andrew Tisch, the nephew of Giants Chairman of Robert Tisch.
