Joliet, IL — The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy are introducing a promotion that literally pays to be a Slammers fan in the months of August and September.  The Absolutely Amazing August promotion includes a guaranteed cash giveaway each home game, with a bonus every Thursday presented by GFS (Gordon Food Service) in addition to the action packed schedule of promotions, giveaways, live music, and great deals.
