|Humana Silver Bulls Club Introduced for Seniors|
Area seniors can now get a special deal at the Bulls.
On Monday, February 13, 2006, the Durham Bulls and Humana, Inc . announced plans for the Silver Bulls Club, a ticket package specifically designed for senior citizens in the Triangle.
For just $25, seniors over the age of 50 will receive tickets to games on April 17th, May 24th, June 14th, July 19th, and August 14th. In addition, they’ll receive two giveaway items, a 10 percent discount in the store, and the first 100 members to arrive at each game will get a free hot dog and soda.
“This may be the best bargain we’ve ever offered,” Durham Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said, “Five game tickets, two giveaways, store discounts, a chance to meet players and coaches and the opportunity for a free lunch for only $25. How can you beat that?”
Also at each game, Senior citizens will be selected to participate in the “Field of Dreams”, a promotion allowing fans to take the field with the Bulls for the National Anthem. The “Senior Field of Dreams” debuted last season during Humana’s Senior Day at the ballpark.
Humana Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the nation’s largest publicly traded health benefits companies, with approximately 7 million medical members. Humana offers a diversified portfolio of health insurance products and related services through traditional and consumer-choice plans to employer groups, government-sponsored plans, and individuals. Over its 45-year history, Humana has consistently seized opportunities to meet changing customer needs. Today, the company is a leader in consumer engagement, providing guidance that leads to lower costs and a better health plan experience throughout its diversified customer portfolio.
“Humana is really excited about our continued partnership with the Bulls,” said Patrick Farley, leader of Humana’s Medicare sales operations in North Carolina. “As Humana works to expand our presence in the area and our North Carolina Medicare membership, it’s also important to us to support programs such as Humana Silver Bulls, and contribute however we can to the great quality of life we have here.”
Seniors can purchase tickets to this program online at www.durhambulls.com or by calling 956-BULL.
