This special, intimate event - designed and priced right for baseball fans of all ages - will showcase a one-on-one discussion with the Yankees legend as he readies himself for a
return to the mound following last season's ACL injury.
We'll talk frankly about his early life, his time in New York and what it's like to be among the greatest athletes who have ever donned the pinstripes. We are all sold out of dugout seats,
but still have fabulous general admission seats available in the theatre priced at two different levels in honor of Mariano's historic career statistics:
GENERAL ADMISSION: $60.80 (for Mariano's 608 Saves) Includes: A collectible Mariano baseball card, plus an exclusive gift package
CHILDREN UNDER 18: $22.10 (for Mariano's 2.21 Career ERA) Includes: A collectible Mariano baseball card, plus an exclusive gift package
Mariano Rivera is one of the few professional athletes whose storied career has left an indelible imprint on the New York sporting landscape. We're honored to have him join us to benefit our important work of prostate cancer awareness. It is our pleasure to give fans an intimate portrait of this legendary Yankee before he heads to spring training.
We very much appreciate our magnanimous host for the evening, the School of Visual Arts. Anthony P. Rhodes, SVA Executive Vice President noted, "Not only does it give baseball
fans a chance to hear and see one of the greats of the game up close, it benefits a worthy, underrepresented cause. The more men that are made aware of the seriousness of prostate cancer-and of how to detect and treat it in its early stages-the closer we come to eliminating
its threat to our collective health and well being."
Mariano Rivera has spent all of his 18 seasons with the New York Yankees. The Panama native is a 12-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion, and is MLB's all-time leader in saves (608) and games finished (892). His accolades include five American League
Rolaids Relief Man Awards and three Delivery Man of the Year Awards.
An accomplished postseason performer, Mariano was named the 1999 World Series Most Valuable Player and the 2003 American League Championship Series MVP, and he holds several postseason records, including lowest earned run average (0.70) and most saves (42). Away from baseball, he is involved in numerous charitable endeavors including the Mariano Rivera Foundation.
Mariano is all about saving games. On January 22, he's going to be helping us save lives!
Ed Randall's Fans For The Cure was established in 2003 as a 501 c3 charity. Our mission is
to increase the awareness of prostate cancer in men and their families and loved ones, and educate them about the life-saving advantages of early detection.
