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.
Next Game: Friday, June 8th, 2018 (6/8/18) at 7:10pm!
