AARP was founded in 1958 by retired school principal Ethel Percy Andrus.  It has grown into the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering Americans 50 and older to choose how they live as they age. With nearly 38 million members – and more than 1 million members in Virginia – AARP has offices in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. AARP works to strengthen communities and advocate for what matters most to families with a focus on health security, financial stability and personal fulfillment.

Come out to the ballpark on July 12, celebrate with us, chow down on some great food, and learn what AARP Virginia is doing in your community.  No products will be promoted or sold.

Game tickets are $7 in advance or $8 at the gate for general admission tickets and $10/ticket advance or $11/ticket at the gate for reserved seating. However, seating will be available in the picnic area and party deck for the entire game, so general admission seating is suggested.
