NEW YORK, April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Three-time All-Star Curtis Granderson of the reigning National League champion New York Mets helped Citi launch the Citi Perks Sweepstakes today that will give fans a chance to win Mets tickets, signed memorabilia and even a chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field this season. Granderson was joined by Citi's Head of Global Public Affairs Ed Skyler, President & CEO of Motivate Jay Walder and Mr. Met at a Citi Bike kiosk in midtown for the launch of the sweepstakes that will run for the next two months.
Participants can enter for a chance to win by posting a picture of themselves and one of the 350 bikes from Citi Bike with Mets-themed branding at kiosk locations throughout the city and post it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #CitiPerksSweepstakes.

One grand prize winner selected at random and named in June will win the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field this season.
