“Today, MetLife announced that the preseason games between the Jets and the Giants will now be called the “MetLife Bowl”. The winner will receive the Snoopy Trophy, and $50,000 will be donated to the charity of the winning teams choice.”

That’s amazing.

According to the Daily News, Wright’s goal is to raise enough money to sponsor at least one room at the New York Ronald McDonald House for one year. “I Can’t think of a better cause than helping out children who need help along with their families,” Wright says. “It’s pretty special to have the resources to do something like this.”

Burkhardt chooses a cause close to him - New York Daily News
Kevin Burkhardt had been seeking a way to use his platform to promote a worthy cause, and finally found it in his own experience.  The Mets broadcaster, who suffers from celiac disease, was the driving force behind Friday’s Celiac Disease Awareness night at Citi Field.
The disease, which affects 1 out of every 100 Americans, is an autoimmune disorder triggered by the protein gluten found in wheat, barley and rye.  Left untreated, it can lead to serious autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, thyroid disease and cancer—but 90 percent of those who have it are not aware.
So Burkhardt—who was diagnosed 10 years ago after losing 30 pounds in a month, and now must monitor his diet with great care—will host a pregame event Friday, which will include a memorabilia auction and chance to shadow Burkhardt before a game and watch the Mets take batting practice.
Tickets to Friday’s pregame events can be purchased through Mets.com/celiac or by calling (718) 507-TIXX.  Net proceeds will go towards celiac education and awareness programs.

SNY Launches Play Ball! Initiative →

Network to Donate $30,000 to Tri-State Area youth leagues

SNY, the official television home of the New York Mets, New York Jets and Big East Conference, today announced the official launch of its new youth baseball initiative entitled Play Ball! presented by Sports Authority. Through this new charitable endeavor, SNY will distribute $30,000 to deserving youth baseball leagues — players ages 6-12 — in the Tri-State area to use for the purchase of player equipment and uniforms, field maintenance and renovations as well as other annual operating expenses such as umpire fees.

SNY will also hold a special dedication event at each selected league’s home field and will feature the league in a segment during an episode of the network’s Emmy-Award winning children’s show Kids Clubhouse. Players from the award-winning leagues will also be invited to a Mets game at Citi Field and recognized on-air during the television broadcast of the game. For information on how to apply to Play Ball! presented by Sports Authority visit the network’s website www.sny.tv/playball.

"A key mission at SNY has always been to support our local communities and youth sports, and we are proud to kick-off our latest initiative — Play Ball! — with our partner Sports Authority to contribute to the growth of local youth baseball in the Tri-State area,” said Steve Raab, President of SNY. “We’ve all played — or have children who play youth sports — and nothing is more satisfying than supporting youth sports. Helping kids learn the importance of teamwork and healthy lifestyles is vital to their future.”
