MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Grand Prix New York will host an event featuring baseball legend Pete Rose and Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger to help raise funds for research to strike out amyotrophic lateral sclerosis on Thursday, Feb. 26, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
The fundraiser will benefit Quinn for the Win to help support Yonkers resident Pat Quinn, co-founder of the much-heralded Ice Bucket Challenge that took social media by storm last summer, raising millions of dollars and awareness for ALS research. Quinn was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, two years ago.
Rose will be on hand to sign autographs, with all proceeds donated to Quinn for the Win.
"Rudy" Ruettiger, the inspiration behind the 1993 film "Rudy" will also be in attendance.
The event will include a night of food, drinks, bowling, silent and live auctions, a raffle, Hawaiian shirt contest and autographs/photos with baseball legend Pete Rose.
Tickets are $75 if you pre-register online or $100 at the door. Tickets for children younger than 10 are $50. There will be an additional cost for Pete Rose autographs.
Grand Prix New York is at 333 N. Bedford Road.
