Girardi To Host Alzheimer's Benefit

Posted by Mark McCray |

Caught this over on Bryan Hoch's Bomber's Beat Blog and thought I would pass it on.

Joe Girardi, whose father Jerry is afflicted with Alzheimer's, will be joined by YES Network Yankees voice/1050 ESPN Radio host Michael Kay and CBS Sports' signature voice Jim Nantz as the guests of honor and keynote speakers at "Remember When, Remember Now" at the venerable Grand Central Oyster Bar (Lower Level, Grand Central Station) in New York City on Wednesday night, November 19.

All proceeds from the fundraiser and celebration of the Grand Central Oyster Bar's 95th Birthday will be earmarked toward Alzheimer's research and care. The New York City Chapter of The Alzheimer's Association, the Central Illinois Chapter, based in Peoria, and Alzheimer's Research at the Texas Medical Center's Neurological Institute will be the beneficiaries of the event.
Tickets are priced at $250 per person, while tables of 10 are priced at $5,000 (exclusive "Box Seat Table" which include celebrity table host), and $2,500. Cocktail hour begins at 6:30 PM, with the dinner and program starting at 7:30 PM . For information and ticket purchase contact 212 490-7108 and 800-622-7775 or info@oysterbarny.com.
