Celebrity Sports Night is one of the premier fundraising events on Long Island and raises funds to enrich the lives of children and adults with disabilities. This year's Honoree is Luke Visconti, CEO and Founder of DiversityInc. Guests at the 2014 event included 3-time World Series Champ, Dwight “Doc” Gooden, J.R. Martinez, the season 13 “Dancing with the Stars” Champion, and Steve Schirripa, known for his role as “Bobby Bacala” on The Sopranos.

Take a “sneak peek” at Sports Night.

During the cocktail reception, guests are provided with an opportunity to collect autographs and speak with dozens of athletes and celebrities in attendance. A silent auction also takes place during the reception. Dinner is followed by a live auction with several “priceless” experiences.

Past athlete and celebrity participants include Joe Namath, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, Joe Theismann, Sean Landeta, Bud Harrelson, Mookie Wilson, Bobby Nystrom, Johnny Weir, Tai Babilonia, Randy Gardner, Jim Brown, Joe Frazier, Keith Hernandez, Boomer Esiason, Willie Mays, Walt Frazier, Lou Pinella, Stephen Baker, Karl Nelson, John Schmitt, Darryl Strawberry, and many other sports legends.

One of the evening’s highlights is an original performance, produced by Olympic Figure Skating Champion JoJo Starbuck, featuring students, athletes and celebrities.
