Yankee Legend To Join Ed Randall For An Exciting Night of Discussion At The School of Visual Arts Theatre To Raise Money For Prostate Cancer Awareness.
“Ed Randall’s Fans For The Cure” charity announces the latest in a series of special events for baseball fans, “An Evening With Mariano Rivera,” which will take place at the School of Visual Arts Theatre (333 West 23 Street in Manhattan) on January 22 from 7-9 p.m.
The special, intimate event – designed and priced right for baseball fans of all ages - will have Randall, longtime baseball and New York sports personality, hosting 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. Randall and Rivera will talk frankly about his early life, his time in New York and what it is like to be among the greatest athletes who have ever donned the pinstripes.
A very limited number of tickets for the event are available and priced at three different levels in honor of Rivera’s historic career statistics:
Dugout: $111.90 per ticket for Mariano’s 1190 Strikeouts
Grandstand: $60.80 per ticket for Mariano’s 608 Saves
Bleachers: $22.10 per ticket for kids under 18 for Mariano’s 2.21 Career ERA
You can purchase tickets and register for the event by going to fans4thecure.org.
All proceeds go to prostate cancer education.
“We are honored to have Mariano join us for this rare, unique night which will benefit prostate cancer awareness,” Randall said. “There are few people, let alone athletes, who have done more for New York than he has done throughout his storied career, and it is our pleasure to give fans an up-close, special treat to both hear and speak to him before he heads to spring training.”
"SVA is honored to host this evening with Ed Randall and Mariano Rivera,” said Anthony P. Rhodes, SVA Executive Vice President. “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 18 of his Major League Baseball 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 (AL) Rolaids Relief Man Awards and three Delivery Man of the Year Awards. An accomplished postseason performer, Rivera was named the 1999 World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) and the 2003 AL Championship Series MVP, and he holds several postseason records, including lowest earned run average (ERA) (0.70) and most saves (42). Away from baseball, he is involved in charitable causes and the Christian community through the Mariano Rivera Foundation.
Randall concluded, “Mariano is all about saving games. On January 22, he’s going to be helping us save lives!”
