On Saturday night, Ryan Zimmerman sent Phillies fans home miserable with just one swing. It was quite the present for Nationals fans who get tired of dealing with Nats Park visitors from the City of Brotherly Love.
Did you know that you can thank Ryan for that special moment? Just like fans channel messages to Ryan in MASN's Defining Moments advertisements, you can send a warm thank you to the third baseman and help a good cause at the same time.
One week from today, on Monday, August 9th, Zimmerman will be hosting a gala in support of the ziMS Foundation at Nationals Park. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. with special performances by David Blaine, Amos Lee and Mutlu.
NBC's Chuck Todd will serve as Master of Ceremonies while Senator Byron Dorgan, Congressman Michael C. Burgess and Congressman Russ Carnahan will serve as honorary co-chairs for the event. This is the inaugural DC event for Zimmerman's foundation, which raises money for MS research and MS treatment programs.
Enjoy drinks, entertainment, silent and live auctions and mingle with Zimmerman and other Washington Nationals. You can bid on some very exciting auction packages including a private work-out with Ryan's personal trainer alongside Zimmerman and 15 other MLB stars at Saddlebrook Training Facility in Tampa, FL with airfare and lodging included.
The $75 general admission ticket includes the Mutlu and Amos Lee performances and access to the silent and live auctions.
The $175 elite ticket also includes open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres and Nationals meet and greet opportunities.
The $500 VIP ticket adds the performance by magician David Blaine, a gourmet dinner in the President's Club, a Ryan Zimmerman autographed baseball, complimentary valet parking and a post concert VIP reception.
