Charleston, S.C. - Charleston Allergy and Asthma, a board-certified allergy practice with locations in Mount Pleasant, Summerville and West Ashley, will host its third peanut-free night at the Charleston RiverDogs stadium on Tuesday, May 1.
The gates will open at 6 p.m. and the game, featuring the Charleston RiverDogs versus the Asheville Tourists, will start at 7:05 p.m.
In preparation for the peanut-free night, the entire Charleston RiverDogs stadium will be thoroughly cleaned and pressure-washed prior to the game to remove any peanut residue to ensure a safe environment for attendees with peanut allergies. There will also be peanut-free refreshments, games and giveaways for attendees.
"It can be difficult for people with peanut allergies to be able to attend a baseball game due to fears of accidental exposure to peanuts. Accidental exposure to even small amounts of peanut protein could lead to a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction in a peanut-allergic person," said Dr. Jeffrey Dietrich, a board-certified allergist with Charleston Allergy and Asthma. "The peanut-free night allows those with peanut allergies to safely be able to enjoy going to a baseball game with their family and friends.
"We invite everyone to stop by the peanut-free night at the world's cleanest ballpark on May 1," continued Dietrich. "Just leave your peanuts at home!"
