3rd Japanese Heritage Night at Mets Citifield

Inviting JETAANY, friends and family to the 3rd Annual Japanese Heritage Night at Mets Citi Field on Friday June 15th at 7:10pm to watch the New York Mets play the Cincinnati Reds!  There will be pre-game entertainment from Taiko Masala, Japanese Folk Dance Institute and the presentation of Mets Community Spirit Awards to NYC Japanese organizations that have given so much to the relief efforts, and a fun after game party at McFadden¹s at Citifield.

This year, JETAANY will be purchased a block of tickets in the Promenade Reserved area for $20 a piece.  Sorry we are sold out and no more tickets can be bought.  If you still want to attend the game you can visit the Mets website and order tickets separately.

A portion of each ticket sale purchased through JETAANY will be sent to the Tomodachi Fund of the US-Japan Council. The Tomodachi Fund supports Japan’s recovery from last year’s earthquake through the strengthening of cultural and economic ties and people to people exchange between the United States and Japan
