Raffle tickets for the fundraiser will be purchased during the event. The fundraiser will start approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the game.

Tickets will be 1 for $5, 5 for $10 and 10 for $20. Load up and spread them around for a chance to win some really great prizes! Let’s raise as much as we can for Luke!

update: GAME TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT! YOU DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND THE GAME TO JOIN US AT THE FUNDRAISER.

Prior to this season we heard about Luke and instantly wanted to find a way to help. We decided to turn one of our outings in to a fundraiser. Hope you can make it out to this amazin’ outing for a great cause. Luke and his family will be on hand for the game and afterwards we’ll be hosting a fundraiser in McFadden’s with tons of great raffle prizes up for grabs. $5 from each game package will go directly to the Lang’s along with every penny raised at the fundraiser. McFadden’s has also graciously agreed to donate a portion of their sales during the fundraiser as well. To learn more about Luke we asked his Mom Jeannine to write a few words.

“Luke Lang was diagnosed at the age of 5 on March 28, 2013 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Positive Philadelphia Chromosome (ph+ALL). He has undergone many rounds of adult dose chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, and numerous amounts of spinal taps (18) with chemotherapy injections. Luke has had many stays at the hospital he is being treated in (Winthrop University) for weeks at a time. Luke has three more years of treatment left. Luke missed three months of Kindergarten and half of first grade. While his friends were playing outside, Luke was either in the hospital or homebound without contact from people because his levels were so low he had no immune system.

What has helped Luke was all the love and support from family and friends. He also made a lot of new friends in the New York Mets. While in the hospital Luke watched the games and then watched the reruns the next day. When he was well enough we went to a game and he then became friends with Anthony Recker, John Buck, Justin Turner, Josh Satin, Matt Harvey, just to name a few. Justin Turner and John Buck still keep in contact with Luke. Lukes passion is baseball and the Mets. His room is Met themed. Luke is their biggest little fan. Luke is a true fighter and his motto is “LOSING IS NOT AN OPTION “. It’s the motto we live by everyday.

LOVE4LUKE. LOSING IS NOT AN OPTION!

- Jeannine Lang “

The top 12 girls!

Top12

Wow! That was a crazy finish. The voting was up for two full weeks and it really came down to the last few minutes for some of our girls. Last year the ladies accumulated just under 35,000 votes and this go around they finished with a total of 41,649 tallied. 6th to 13th were separated by just 63 votes! That’s got to be our closest finish yet.

We applaud each and every one of you 90+ girls who tried out. If you didn’t make it this time, just like the Mets, there’s always next year!

We’ll shoot the calendar in September and the release party will be at McFadden’s Citi Field on a Saturday night in November. You WILL NOT want to miss this party. Going to be incredible as usual. We will fill you all in on the date as it nears.

Thanks again to McFadden’s Citi Field for being our official calendar sponsor! They’ve been with us since our first edition in 2012 and we thank them for signing on for yet another year. If you’d like to take on a co-sponsorship roll, please shoot us an e-mail by clicking the contact button above.

Without further ado, here are are top 12 girls for 2015! They’re now in the company of our past 36 who have held the reins before them. Congratulations ladies!

Loyal ‘Til The Last Out 2014

September28th

SOLD OUT! All 860 seats gone in just one hour and ten minutes!

 

Don’t miss it! Our final outing of the season is always a blow out. Come cheer on the squad with hundreds of like minded die hards one last time before April. Set an alarm and be on our site at 7pm. This event WILL sell out.

 

PIGROASTad

 

Before the game we’ll be hosting our very first PIG ROAST tailgate party to get things started. This will be free and open to everyone who is sitting with us. Wear your event shirt so we know you’re down with the crew. Pig Guy NYC will be on hand with a 75 pound pig. They’ll be arriving the night before to start cooking. We’ll kick off the feast at 10am, and the food will be first come first serve.

We’ll head in around 12:30pm to be to our seats by the National Anthem.

Come prepared with your own drinks and snacks. If pig isn’t your thing, you are more than welcome to bring what you’d like, or set up a grill of your own. A few necessities people tend to forget: ice, plastic cups and garbage bags. If you’re not sitting with us you’re still welcome to come hang out, the free food will just be off limits.

Our parties consist of a family friendly atmosphere. Bring your kids, bring your wife. This is normally just an extra large gathering of Mets fans who mingle and meet up before the game. Come solo or bring your whole group. When you’re with The 7 Line Army you’re never alone.

The MTA lot is directly across from Citi Field’s rotunda entrance on the opposite side of Roosevelt Avenue.

POST GAME OPTION EXCLUSIVELY FOR OUR GROUP: $20 2 hour open bar after the game. This can be pre-paid online or paid for at the door after the game. Your decision.
