The New York Giants are a charitable organization and that's reflected by the generous nature of their players. It's one of the many reasons fans are so fiercely loyal to them and why they're often looked at as one of the classiest organizations in the sports world. And now, Big Blue is "stepping up" to assist Family Services of Westchester by donating 27 pairs of game-worn cleats (autographed), which will be auctioned off on the Steiner Sports Memorabilia “Ground Breaking” Auction to assist said charity.
Some of the notable members of Big Blue who have supplied memorabilia to this auction include Eli Manning, Justin Tuck, Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul, Chris Snee, Prince Amukamara, Will Beatty, Antrel Rolle, Mark Herzlich, Keith Rivers and Stevie Brown.
In addition to the Giants' game-worm memorabilia, 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.
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.
Get bidding and good luck!
