Only tickets dated Monday, Aug. 5 will be accepted for Monday’s games. Fans who had tickets for Sunday’s game will be contacted by the Dragons about game ticket options.

The Dragons will also accept donations to the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund at the games tonight and Tuesday night, team representatives said in a media release Monday.

A “pass the bucket” process will be conducted to allow fans to make cash donations to the fund. Also, all proceeds of the 50/50 raffle will go to the Oregon District fund, rather than the Dragons Foundation, bot both tonight and tomorrow.

“The Dragons organization sends our thoughts and prayers to everyone impacted by this tragedy,” the release said.
