Peoria Chiefs to Auction Off Senate Seats in 2009
In keeping with the ongoing story of the Chicago political scene, the Peoria Chiefs (A) have decided to auction off "Senate Seats" this season.
Just as the United States Senate Seat vacated by President-Elect Barack Obama is viewed as the best opening in the Senate, the “Senate Seats” will be the two best seats in the house for Chiefs games.
The seats, which are located in the second row of section 108, are directly behind home plate and protected by the screen sell for $10 per game. They will be available via auction on the Chiefs website at www.peoriachiefs.com beginning February 1. The auctions will end 24 hours prior to each home game and begin at $20. All proceeds from the “Senate Seat Auctions” will go into a pot which will be distributed at the end the season among various local charities.
“These are the two best seats in the house and a great location to experience the on-field entertainment and watch Peoria Chiefs baseball,” said Chiefs President Rocky Vonachen. “The open senate seat in Illinois is very popular and has caused quite a stir locally. We hope that our two Chiefs “Senate seats” create the same water cooler talk and allow us to help some local charities in the process.”
