Lynn Cohen works tirelessly for her Pitch In For A Good Cause foundation and as her last event of the season she has a deal for youÂ remember, there will come a day during the winter that you wish you were at a ball game even to watch this bunch of slugsÂ :
Optimistic Lynn purchased 800 tickets in the Big Apple seating area at Citi Field for the October 3, 2009 game. With those tickets, she happily added on 800 “meal plans,” including a tasty gourmet appetizer extravaganza and a $15 swipe card to be used anywhere in the ballpark–more than enough for Shake shack burger and shake! What a gorgeous day it will be, she thought. And the cheering, smiling GKR fans would send our Metsies off into October baseball…
Clearly Optimistic Lynn will not be working as a fortune teller anytime soon. Her powers of telling the future are alas way less potent than her ability to design a supercute t-shirt. Who could have foretold what our August 2009 lineup would look like? Where’s our slugging first baseman, our lightening fast short stop, our brand new 8th inning set-up pitcher, our multi-Gold Glove center fielder? Lynn could swear this team looked different when she bought those shiny new tickets…
On August 10th, Less Optimistic Lynnwoke up and said â€œUH OH.â€ Obviously if the team is firmly in 5th place, the fundraiser is in danger! What to do with all of the tickets and swipe cards on the desk? Letâ€™s make it a party, she thought. Not an end of the year party, but the beginning of a new one! A 2010 New Beginning party. Come to Citi Field with your GKR friends to purge the bad moments of 2009 and celebrate the good ones…and the even better ones that are sure to come next year.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Come to our party and
Let’s start anew!
