Terre Haute Catholic Charities will give a free ticket to each fan that donates at least five pounds of items. Donors to the American Red Cross will also get a free ticket to the game.

Looking ahead on the sports calendar to August, Oak Hill Country Club, the site of 2013 PGA championship in upstate New York, lost several trees in the storm. But still standing is the famed Leaning Oak — supported by a steel beam since 1956 — on the right side of the 12th hole.

“The Leaning Oak, that tree weathered the storm and is unscathed, which is remarkable considering how long it’s been supported by that steel beam for decades now,” tournament director Ryan Cannon said, “and the trees that did come down were not all that far from the leaning oak. pretty amazing.”
