BALTIMORE -- Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is hosting his second annual #StayHungry tailgate this Sunday with tickets still available for the charitable endeavor that raised more than $10,000 last year for the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore.

The event, which features an all-inclusive tailgate party with Jones, sold out last year, and the outgoing All-Star has already taken to his Twitter and Instagram accounts encouraging people to help make 2014's tailgate even bigger.

The purple tailgate, prior to the Ravens-Titans game at M&T Bank Stadium is $50 and includes open bar and food for 3 1/2 hours along with a commemorative koozie. The event, which goes from 8:30 a.m. ET until noon, features food from local establishments including Blue Agave, Abbey Burger, Jimmy's Famous Seafood, Mother's Grille and Delia Foley's. The event is for ages 21 and up, and entertainment will be provided by Skies in Chaos along with DJ Buddha.

There is also an $85 VIP Tailgate Pass option that gets you access, four hours of eats and drinks, a photo op with Jones (for the purchaser only) and a commemorative koozie and T-shirt.

Tickets can be purchased at bmorearoundtown.com and there is no guarantee walkups will be available Sunday. The tailgate will be held rain or shine and there is a strict no-refund policy.
