Tickets are now on sale for the ziMS Foundation's second annual "A Night at the Park" event hosted by third baseman Ryan Zimmerman. The fundraiser and live auction will take place on Thursday, June 30 at Nationals Park beginning at 6 p.m.
It's also official that country star Rodney Atkins will headline the event. Fans of country music know that you can't listen to a country station for more than a few minutes before hearing his recent hit, "Farmer's Daughter." In recent years, Atkins has won the Academy of Country Music's Top New Male Vocalist award, plus five other ACM nominations and two Country Music Association nominations.
Tickets for the event start at $75 for general admission. VIP tickets are available for $500, which includes a private reception and entertainment from magician David Blaine.

Proceeds will benefit the ziMS Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research and treatment programs for multiple sclerosis patients.
