Thanks to the Mets hitting 36 home runs in the month of August (plus the game against the Yankees in September that was a makeup of an August contest), the 2020 #Dollars4Dingers fundraiser raised over $2,000 for local food banks from your combined pledges. We are once again blown away by the generosity of our listeners and the Amazin’ Avenue community.
Last year, for our first #Dollars4Dingers fundraiser, we had a big party at Mikkeller to celebrate the culmination of the fundraiser and hold raffles to raise even more funds for charity. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, that’s not something we can do this year. But COVID-19 can’t stop us from thanking you all for your participation and it can’t stop us from gathering virtually to celebrate.
This year, to commemorate the culmination of #Dollars4Dingers, we are having a virtual game watching party and prize drawing via Zoom. The event is taking place on Saturday, September 26 at 6:00 PM EDT. We will watch the game (slated to be Jacob deGrom’s final start of the season) together and socialize. In between innings, we will draw names out of a hat for our prizes. Anyone who pledged to the 2020 #Dollars4Dingers fundraiser in any amount will be eligible for the drawing, but you don’t need to have pledged to join us and hang out. Here are the details for our Zoom gathering:
