CLEVELAND - Today, Indians First Baseman, Nick Swisher announced that he and his wife, JoAnna will be hosting their first ever charity event in Cleveland on Monday, July 28th. MISSION SWISHER is a scavenger hunt that will take place at Progressive Field from 4:00-8:00 p.m where 15 teams will be searching through every nook and cranny of the stadium to find clues looking for the ultimate prize. 

"This event is going to be so much fun for people of all ages," said Nick Swisher.   "It gives everyone a chance to experience the ballpark in a whole new way and hopefully raise a lot of money for a great cause. We're so blessed to have the opportunity to give back and can't wait to get our hands dirty."

Each team will consist of eight contestants paired with a celebrity guest. Several athletes and entertainers are expected to be in attendance. For every clue that is found, each team will receive a certain number of points. The team that receives the most points in the allocated time will win. 

"We are truly honored to be hosting an event that will have such a positive impact on kids here in Cleveland," said JoAnna Garcia Swisher. "As a parent, the health of your child is the most important thing in this world and we hope to help as many families as possible with the proceeds from MISSION SWISHER."

Immediately following the scavenger hunt will be an after party in the Collection Auto Club with food, drinks, an awards ceremony and silent auction. MISSION SWISHER is family friendly and open to all ages.

All proceeds will benefit The Swisher Family Foundation, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization designed to help all children in need with vital medical care, education and recreational activities. The Foundation also supports essential programs that will make a difference in a child's life, while also helping to raise self-esteem in hopes of creating a bright future for children.
