DansShare Program Gives Back to Community

The DansShare program helps support area nonprofits, school and sports teams by having their group work in the concession stand or sell the 50-50 tickets. The concession groups receive a donation for their work, as well as accepting tips from hungry fans. Fans also purchase 50-50 tickets from other groups selling the chances during the games, with the selling group receiving a portion of the proceeds.

This year through DansShare, nearly $9,750 was given to these area nonprofits and sports teams during the 2021 season – a year that saw four home rainouts, or the total would have been higher.

Other community efforts this past season included hosting the ImpactLife Bloodmobile along with a COVID-19 vaccination drive in cooperation with the Vermilion County Health Department and the National Guard. The Dans also worked with our presenting sponsor, OSF Healthcare, to raise funds during their All Cancer Awareness Night on the last game of the season.

So just as Dans fans enjoy coming to the ballpark every summer, the Dans enjoy giving back to our community.
