An Evening of Laughter and Charity With the Detroit Tigers

“Hits and Giggles” will be hosted by Jason Benetti, the Tigers’ new TV play-by-play announcer. Known for his engaging commentary, Benetti will be joined on stage by unnamed Tigers players and professional comedians, all coming together to support charitable causes close to the franchise’s heart.

The event aims to raise funds for the Detroit Tigers Foundation, the franchise’s dedicated charitable organization, and the Children’s Center art therapy program. The latter is a local nonprofit committed to improving youth mental health through creative expression. Proceeds from the night will go directly to these causes, making the event not just a fun evening but also a meaningful one.

Ticket Options and Entertainment

Tickets for the event come in two tiers. Standard tickets are priced at $350, offering guests all-inclusive food and drinks during the show, along with admission to the after-show event. For those seeking a more exclusive experience, the VIP package is available for $500. VIP guests will enjoy a cocktail hour beginning at 5:30 p.m., where they can meet players and receive Tigers memorabilia.

To ensure the exclusivity of the performances, no cell phones will be permitted during the event. Attendees will be required to lock their phones in special pouches, ensuring the comedians and players can perform without the distraction of recording devices.

Following the comedy show, the entertainment will continue with “Extra Innings” on Columbia Street at 9:00 p.m., weather permitting. This after-show event promises more fun and the opportunity for fans to mingle in a festive atmosphere.
