Businessman hands off Ravens tickets to kids

November 07, 1996|By Joan Jacobson | Joan Jacobson,SUN STAFF

Min C. Der hopes to make football fans out of 200 city children today.

Der, the owner of a local company that sells tour packages to Baltimore Ravens games, will give 200 free tickets to low-income city children today at a ceremony in City Hall.

The tickets, to be distributed to children through the city's Recreation and Parks Department, are for a Nov. 24 Ravens game against Jacksonville at Memorial Stadium.

Der said he obtained the tickets through his company, which purchases blocks of season tickets, then sells football fans package deals that include transportation, a meal and souvenirs. He said the tickets are worth $20 each.

Der, who was a Baltimore Colts fan as a child, said he hopes the tickets will interest the children in football and create a "fan base" for the new Baltimore team.
