“Striking out Childhood Cancer: A Night with Ike Davis” is a charity event that will benefit the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative and Solving Kids Cancer. The dinner will be held on Sunday, July 17th, at 7:00 PM at Michael’s Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY. The family-friendly evening includes: a full dinner and drinks, a live interview with Ike with Q&A from the guests, a signed baseball item from Ike, a special event t-shirt, photographs, an auction, a raffle and a gift bag of goodies. The event is hosted by Linda Cohn of ESPN’s Sportscenter and other special guests. The tickets to the event run $200/adults and $100/kids (less than 16-years old).
A generous donor has offered the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative the opportunity to give tickets to a number of families (12 people total – children and adults). This should be a fun event for New York Mets fans living in the tri-state area. We will choose the families by asking those who are interested to send us a paragraph (400 words maximum) by Friday, July 8th, telling us why meeting Ike would be special to them. We will select the “winners” from the responses we receive and send them a note on Sunday, July 10th. Please send your entries to Bruce@SarcomaHelp.org . Please include your name, phone number, age, and type of sarcoma in the note. We welcome entries from kids and adults. Good luck!
