image001-300x214-3615930-3806543Manager Brett Butler and select Reno Aces players will act as celebrity servers for a special dinner at Bugsy’s Sports Bar and Grill on Aug. 11, with all proceeds to benefit the Reno Aces Foundation, the organization announced today.

Following the Aces’ 1:05 p.m. game on Aug. 11, the ballclub will host a private dinner in the Freight House District beginning at 5 p.m.  Butler and several members of the team will serve dinner to participating patrons, in hopes of raising money for the Reno Aces Foundation. Beloved mascot Archie, as well as Aces Ballpark on-field MCs Austin & Tina, will join in on the festivities.

Admission into this special dinner will be just $65. For the price of admission, fans will receive dinner, drinks and a ticket to that day’s game against the Memphis Redbirds.

Dinner will consist of one-half slab of ribs, a plate of nachos, the choice of one of four premium entrees and dessert. All beer, wine and liquor will be included in the price of admission, courtesy of New West Distributing and Southern Wine and Spirits.

The event serves as the first major benefit for the newly-launched Reno Aces Foundation. All proceeds—including tips for the Aces celebrity servers—will go to the foundation, which supports youth and family initiatives throughout Northern Nevada.

Fans can RSVP beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednesday by contacting Amanda at (775) 334-7002. Space is limited, and spots are expected to fill-up very quickly.
