One of the most memorable nights in recent years was the night I met Ron Darling. And I met him at Red Star! The stars are about to align again with Ron & Red Star and this time to benefit The Ron Darling Foundation, an organization dedicated primarily to juvenile diabetes research.

Red Start is hosting The First Annual metroBASEBALL Ambassador Awards whose honorees are Ron Darling and The Ron Darling Foundation; Jack Curran, the revered baseball coach from Archbishop Molloy HS; and husband and wife Phil and Denise Galasso, the the founders of the Greenpoint Little League. Brooklyn’s own Ken Dashow, the much-beloved Q104.3 Classic Rock disc jockey is also emceeing!

This is a fabulous event that’s going to showcase and honor people in our community. For just $150 – which is a contribution to a great cause! – gets you an open bar cocktail hour, a four-course dinner upstairs in Red Star’s private event space, autographs, and a special metroBASEBALL gift bag. Seating is limited to 50 people, so I would buy tickets now if you’re interested. This will have a lot of Greenpoint’s movers and shakers there.

There are also tickets for the cocktail party only. These tickets are $30 and include a 1 hour open bar, a meet and greet with Ron Darling, autographs and photos.

  1. What a timely post! Now that baseball season is back in full swing and I am having a hard time getting thru the SNY Mets games without a tear or two (kidding….not really), I have come to look forward to the rapport between the gents who narrate these games, including. I remember your original post re) the Red Star run-in and oh I how i envied you so! I’d love to go to this one but it might be more than I could afford, despite the lovely cause. Maybe the cocktail part. Last year we saw Ronnie speak about his book and he signed everyone’s copies afterwards–he was an entertaining speaker and super nice, as I’m sure you know!
