Tickets Going Quickly For Family Night
Tickets are going quickly for the Peninsula Hospital Center-sponsored Rockaway Nights at KeySpan Park, the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
There will be two nights at KeySpan this summer when Rockaway residents can enjoy the championship team and help the hospital Oncology Unit at the same time.
"The Cyclones are sold out again this year even before the season begins," says Nancy Vardakis, the event’s coordinator. "This might be the only chance many Rockaway residents get to see the Mets farm club."
Vardakis points out that both games are against the Cyclone’s archrival, the Staten Island Yankees, a New York Yankee farm club.
On Wednesday, July 16, the hospital will host 350 local fans in the park’s bleacher area. A donation of $15 will entitle you to a bleacher seat.
On Friday, August 1, the hospital will host 200 fans in the grandstand as well as 300 fans in the bleachers.
Those who donate $25 will be entitled to a grandstand seat, while those who donate $20 will be entitled to a bleacher seat for the weekend game.
Those interested in supporting the event for either game should do so by using the coupon in the advertisement in this week’s Wave or sending a ticket order with a check to Peninsula Baseball Night, care of Peninsula Hospital Center, 51-15 Beach Channel Drive, Far Rockaway, New York 11691.
"Last year, we sold out our tickets early and had to return many orders," Vardakis says. "We urge everybody to order early if they want to see the game."
