Bernie Williams, the talented jazz musician and World Series’ Champ from the New York Yankees will be playing a very special concert. On October 23, 2010 at 8 pm. Bernie will perform with his band at the Lafayette theater in Suffern, NY. All of Bernie’s concerts are special, but this one is near and dear to his heart. A portion of the proceeds for this October 23rd show will go to support the Vincent Crotty Foundation and The Christopher Konkowski Memorial Scholarship.
Vincent Crotty and Christopher Konkowski were high school classmates and baseball teammates who were tragically killed on March 10, 2010 on the way to one of their practices in a car accident. Vincent was a very big New York Yankees and even bigger Bernie Williams fan. He loved Bernie ever since the day when he was 4 years old and met Bernie who signed his baseball cap. For the full story, please visit www.vincentcrotty.org.
Bernie met with the families of the two young baseball players recently and now has a very special “night of jazz” concert setup to support the scholarship fund set in the names of the two boys.
