Celiac Awareness Night at the Mets

Join the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and R.O.C.K. Long Island for Celiac Awareness Night at the Mets . The New York Mets will be taking on the Philadelphia Phillies, and you can watch it all with family and friends from our special sections in the Left Field Landing.

All participants will receive a Mets Ticket Holder and Lanyard with advance purchase.
