Tweet [1]

Brian Cashman is once again going to rappel as part of the holiday festivities in Stamford, Conn. And this time he’ll be joined by Bobby Valentine. Here are the details in the city of Stamford’s press release.

On Friday, November 30 from 6:00 to 9:00am (ET), Rick Reichmuth, FOX News Channel’s Meteoroligist, Brian Cashman, General Manager of the New York Yankees and sports great Bobby Valentine will broadcast live from the top, middle and bottom of one of Stamford, CT’s tallest buildings, The Landmark Building.

Santa’s Elf, Brian VanOrsdel will be on hand, strapping Rick, Brian and Bobby in and guiding them down the 22 stories of the building, all the while broadcasting live on the FOX News Channel, “FOX & Friends” morning newscast. FOX & Friends is the #1 cable morning show in the nation and has been #1 for over 100 months in a row. The event marks the start of Rappelling Santa’s arrival in Stamford and is a good practice run for the rappelling crew for Sunday’s Heights & Lights program

On Sunday, December 2 at 5:00 pm Brian Cashman, Bobby Valentine, Rick Reichmuth, Santa and friends are scheduled once again to make their dare devil descent down the 22 stories of the Landmark Building, for Reckson, A Division of SL Green Realty Corp’s Rappelling Santa. After the rappel, Santa’s busy holiday schedule will take him straight up Bedford Street to Latham Park where he will join the Stamford Community in Latham Park for music with The Jumpers Orchestra and the lighting of the Holiday Tree, donated by Bartlett Tree Company.
