Annual Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day
T.E.A.L.® Helped Establish This Annual Event at Citi Field in 2012
Since 2012, T.E.A.L.® has been actively involved in the planning of this amazing day dedicated to Ovarian Cancer Awareness at Citi Field. Serving as both an awareness program and a fundraiser for T.E.A.L.® through an online ticket window, this event allows T.E.A.L.® to reach 41,800 people at Citi Field in one day. Throughout the years, attendees have learned about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer through Pre-Game events like a Public Service Announcement, planned performances, a Spirit Award presentation, talk of walk, booths, and digital awareness signage around the stadium.
T.E.A.L.® has organized the pre-game shows for this wonderful day each year. In 2017, 500 supporters walked on the warning track with T.E.A.L.® supporters Yankees Manager, Joseph Girardi, Mets Manager, Terry Collins, and actor, Steve Buscemi which helped raise awareness about ovarian cancer before the game. In 2012, we helped ovarian cancer survivor Lisa Galley‘s dream come true when we invited her to sing the national anthem before the first pitch. We’ve also featured American Idol contestant Brielle Von Hugel in 2012, Amanda Alicea, Miss Staten Island in 2013 and Deanna Hoy, a St. Joseph’s College student, to sing the national anthem in 2014. Many groups participate in this fundraising event. There are various sponsorship opportunities available. Please contact T.E.A.L.® directly for more details if you wish to get involved.
A portion of each ticket sold at this ticket window will benefit T.E.A.L.® Show your support by buying a ticket and wearing the color teal to the Mets game on the 7th Annual Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day at Citi Field. Tickets are available now! We hope you can join us for the now annual event benefiting our awareness and research programs.
