Celiac Disease Awareness Day at Citi Field- Sunday, April 28, 2013!

The Celiac Disease Awareness Day at Citi Field will be held this year on Sunday, April 28th!  This is a great day to go see a Mets game, as well as eat gluten-free snacks from the concession stand, meet others with celiac disease and help raise money for the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University!  I love this day!  I missed it last year because I had just had my baby boy- and didn't think it would be approipate to bring a few week old to the game! (lol) but am looking forward to going this year!    It does conflict with the GIG Long Island Gluten-Free Vendor Fair & Fundrsiser, which is that weekend- but you can go to the Vendor Fair on Saturday, if you're planning on going to the game on Sunday!  (If you live out in Suffolk, you could even to the Vendor Fair when it opens at 11 on Sunday, stay for a little bit, make your rounds, and then drive in for the game at 1pm!- although then you would miss the pre-game festivities at Citi Field which begin at 11:40, but if you can not make it to the Vendor Fair the day before, at least you have options!- Don't miss the Vendor Fair!)
