Note: This year Japan has been hit hard by the tragic events that occurred in March. Much still needs to be done and Japanese Heritage Night has the potential to be a significant fundraising event. A portion of each ticket sold through our group will go to Japan relief efforts. The more tickets we sell, the more the Mets will donate. If we sell more than 500 tickets, the donation percentage will increase to as much as 25% of the ticket sales. To see photos and a video of last years event please check out the link to our facebook page below!

So whether or not you are a baseball fan, a Mets fan, have Japanese heritage, or are simply just interested in "things Japanese"...let's all get together to have a great time at the "Ol' Ball Game"!
