Get in on the action! The Viscardi Center will host its 52nd Annual Celebrity Sports Night on May 17, 2018. This star-studded fundraiser gives attendees the rare and exciting opportunity to mingle with their favorite sports legends. Proceeds support the enhancement and expansion of programs and services for people with disabilities on Long Island and in the New York Metro area.
Headlining this year’s event is iconic former WFAN sports radio host Mike Francesa; NCAA wrestling champion and motivational speaker Anthony Robles; and U.S. Marine Veteran and Suffolk County Police Officer Lieutenant Corporal Matias Ferreira. Former
Celebrity Sports Night attracts hundreds of community leaders, philanthropists, and athletes to The Viscardi Center campus every year. 2017’s event was headlined by Mets players Wilmer Flores, Jose Reyes, T.J. Rivera, and Zack Wheeler. In 2016, the 50th anniversary fundraiser welcomed New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and HBO Real Sports host Bryant Gumbel. Recent guests have also included Kenny Albert, Victoria Arlen, Sarah Hughes, Bud Harrelson, Mookie Wilson, Mick Foley, Dwight “Doc” Gooden, and Karl Nelson.
This year’s event — chaired by John Hogan, Sr., Senior Managing Director of Technology, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., and the Hogan family — is themed around the idea that children and adults can be unstoppable with access to the enriching education and employment opportunities provided by The Viscardi Center. The night kicks off with a cocktail reception, during which guests can snap selfies and receive autographs with dozens of athletes and celebrities. The program includes a sports memorabilia-themed silent auction and a formal sit-down dinner. A live auction, featuring an exclusive selection of experiences and packages, rounds out the evening.
