To start the new year off right, O’Neill’s is hosting a fundraiser to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in cooperation with several local sports legends.

Headed up by 1994 Stanley Cup champion Brian Leetch and his teammates Adam Graves and Mike Richter, the event brings together champions from a number of different sports – football, basketball, boxing, and more – for a fundraising effort on behalf of St. Jude.

Hallmarked by an impressive heated tent taking up the entire length of 53rd Drive, the event will take place from 1 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, January 25.

Tickets are just $100 ($50 for guests 12 and under) and include an all-day gourmet buffet and open bar.

Live music including the Dr. JIN Band, guitarist Bugs Moran, and pianist Dennis Liburd, will be featured throughout the venue all day long. Family-friendly entertainment, including renowned magician Seth Kramer, will perform from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Madison Square Garden’s sideline reporter Tina Cervasio will co-host and emcee the event, in addition to conducting a live auction featuring packages like a week-long villa rental in Cannes, France, for up to 8 people or four nights at luxurious Dominican Republic golf resort Casa de Campo.

Guests will also be able to purchase raffle tickets ($10 each) for items such as a Yankee Legends Stadium experience or a batting practice experience at Citi Field, as well as signed items by NY sports icons like Brian Leetch, Mariano Rivera, and many more.

Tickets can be purchased online via EventBrite or by calling Eagel Sports Promotions at (914) 332-4772.
