MasterCard ‘Stand Up to Cancer’ Campaign: World Series 2016

During the 2016 World Series, MasterCard continued its 7-year tradition of making an on-field, in-game presentation of a $4 million ‘debit card’ to Stand Up To Cancer. The donation represented the proceeds from MasterCard’s Priceless Conversations campaign. “One precious cent” was contributed for using a MasterCard to pay for a qualifying meal over $10 between July 7 to August 19, 2016.
