Here’s a commercial the Yankees and manager Joe Girardi did for the New York City chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Girardi will will be honored with the Community Leadership Award at the Association’s “Forget-Me-Not” gala tonight at The Pierre. Accepting the award on his behalf will be David Cone.
The manager will be joined by Cone, Al Leiter, Michael Kay and others on June 15 at the Grand Central Oyster Bar for the second annual “Remember When, Remember Now” gala to benefit Girardi’s Catch 25 foundation.
The money raised will benefit 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.
Tickets are $250 with tables for 10 priced at $5,000 and $2,500. Call (212) 972-5337 to purchase tickets or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Girardi’s father, Jerry, is afflicted with the disease.
