WASHINGTON -- It is not every day that a public relations director is able to hold his own bobblehead in his hands, but longtime Mets PR man Jay Horwitz enjoyed that experience this week. Horwitz's bobblehead giveaway will highlight Mets Social Media Night on Aug. 23, with a portion of each ticket sale going toward Hope Shines for Shannon.
That charity benefits Mets senior director of media relations Shannon Forde, who is battling Stage 4 breast cancer.
Tickets for Social Media Night are available at mets.com/jaybobble, and include a bobblehead as well as admission to the postgame Third Eye Blind concert.
