YEAH, I KNOW THE METS STINK BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T ENJOY A DAY AT CITI FIELD ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S FOR A PITCH IN FOR A GOOD CAUSE

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 you  remember, there will come a day during the winter that you wish you were at a ball game even to watch this bunch of slugs :

Come celebrate with GKR and our loyal supporters! Food, free GKR tee, stand on the Citi Field warning track during anthem, raffles and fun, fun fun! Get 15% off tickets and all GKR merchandise for blog readers only now through August 15th. Use coupon code “blogger”

In April 2009, a bright-eyed woman named Lynn Cohen began exciting plans for the second annual fundraising event for her beloved foundation, Pitch in for a Good Cause (aka garykeithandron.com). Hope for the future couldn’t have been more rosy, and the inaugural event at Shea Stadium had sold out so fast that she’d had to add extra tickets. Surely the final weekend of Citi Field’s first season would be just as thrilling, if not more so. Hey, maybe our Mets would already be in the playoffs by then!

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 Lynn woke up and said “UH OH.” 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? Let’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!
