A special night with some special guests

Every offseason there are plenty of charity dinners and fundraisers, and they’re all for fantastic causes. There’s one going on this weekend, though, that I wanted to highlight because a) it has a ton of great benefits for Yankee fans who attend; and b) it’s right in the LoHud backyard.

On this Saturday, January 30, Bernie Williams is hosting his 8th annual dinner and auction to benefit the Hillside Food Outreach Neighbors Helping Neighbors program. The outreach helps over 700 families in Westchester and Putnam Counties who are, literally, unable to put food on the table.

Good friend Sweeny Murti from WFAN will be hosting the event which is at Greentree Country Club in New Rochelle, and Joe Girardi will be this year’s special guest. There are a variety of ticket options for people interesting in attending – including one package that gives access to a special meet-and-greet and cocktail hour with Bernie and Girardi. You will also receive an autographed jersey from Bernie.

There will be both live and silent auctions featuring a number of great prizes. I’m told one is the right to “Go to Work with Sweeny Murti” for a day, which includes having dinner with him and the rest of the media in the press dining room. One can only imagine that will go for less than the autographed Joe DiMaggio lithograph.

Anyway, if you’re interested, go here for more information and here to buy tickets online. It should be a great night for a great program.
