Nationals Park… more than a baseball field
Nationals Park has hosted over 150 non-baseball events in addition to 164 Nationals games since its inception in March of 2008. The park has been home to a Papal Mass, the Elton John & Billy Joel Face2Face Tour, birthday parties, bar mitvahs and even a wedding.
Over the past few months Nationals Park has emerged as an ideal place to host a charitable event–especially fundraising walks. The Nationals partnered with five different organizations this year and provided them with a unique twist on a common fundraising venture–a walk around the ballpark. The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, American Diabetes Foundation and American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks all took place in and around Nationals Park. Additionally, the Opening Ceremony for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk and the Symposium for the Avon 2-Day Walk took place at the park.
Thousands of people participated in these events and raised over a million dollars–while enjoying the beautiful concourses and sightlines at Nationals Park for a cause close to their heart. The club looks forward to expanding these ventures in 2010–anything is possible at the ballpark with a little imagination. For information on hosting your event at the ballpark click HERE.
