New Rochelle, NY, May 23, 2013 – Notable members of Big Blue including Eli Manning, Justin Tuck, Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul will literally be taking “Giant” steps to assist Family Services of Westchester by joining teammates with the donation of 27 pair of game-worn cleats to be auctioned off on the Steiner Sports Memorabilia “Ground Breaking” Auction to assist the charity.
Chris Snee, Prince Amukamara, Will Beatty, Antrel Rolle, Mark Herzlich, Keith Rivers and Stevie Brown are also participating in the auction, available at http://auction.steinersports.com/. Bidding continues through June 2.
There are also nine VIP “Meet and Greet” experiences with such top sports names as Matt Harvey, Rickey Henderson, Cal Ripken, Jr., Tommy Lasorda, Darryl Strawberry, Bo Jackson, Pete Rose, David Cone and Dave Winfield.
The Steiner Sports auction also includes one of the most historic artifacts from the career of the immortal Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson – a newly-discovered, authentic game-worn baseball glove used during both the 1955 and ’56 World Series (his final season).
A $500 shopping spree at Steiner Sports and a $1,000 gift card for London Jewelers are also on the block.
About Family Services of Westchester
Family Services of Westchester’s Youth Residences give a chance in life to teens who might otherwise not have a chance. Boys and girls come to us deeply troubled, having suffered hurtful neglect and abuse or serious conflict with their parents. Many have been abandoned and have never experienced what most of us take for granted: a stable and secure home. They are often ready to turn their backs on a world that has rejected them. They leave our care, almost always knowing that the world can be harsh, but there are people on whom they can depend. They learn ways to cope, to tap into their strengths, to rise above, and to find hope and joy in becoming creative, contributing members of society.
