Funds raised from this event will be donated to Tuesday's Children. We've worked with this great organization on a few occasions and we couldn't be happier to keep that relationship going.
Tuesday's Children was formed in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, and is a response and recovery organization that supports youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.
Tuesday’s Children works on the front lines of unimaginable tragedies, providing personalized support and a safe “landing place” to traumatized, grief-stricken children, families and communities left reeling from terrorism or traumatic loss.
Their work begins when the emergency response ends – when the true, life-altering impact of the violence sets in. They remain long after other aid organizations and the media have gone. This is their promise to those they serve.
Their proven, long-term approach to helping family members and communities recover was forged in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Their programs enable their service population to, over time, heal, recover and ultimately thrive.
Tuesday’s Children is proud to offer the same life-changing programs for the military community as they did for those who lost a loved one on September 11th.
We encourage you to come on out to MCU Park in Coney Island to cheer on your fellow Mets fans competing in this inaugural event while raising money for a great local charity.
16 teams of Mets fans will compete in a co-ed single elimination tournament.
Tickets are just $10 with $5 of that going to Tuesday's Children.
Doors open at 8:30am and the first games start at 9am. The final game will get going at 5pm and you'll definitely not want to miss that one. Big time bragging rights at stake.
Championship and MVP trophy presentations to follow.
It'll be a long day, but don't worry, concessions will be open and the Cyclones are allowing re-entry. So, if your favorite team gets knocked out, you can stroll around Coney and come back for the finals.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
