HARRISON, N.Y. - Harrison resident and New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi is donating his time to support the library with an autograph signing on Sunday from noon to 1 p.m.
The signing will be held at the library, which is located at 2 Bruce Ave. The event is open to everyone.
Girardi's fundraiser, which supports the Harrison Public Library Foundation, will be divided into two consecutive segments, beginning with an MVP Private Session from noon to 12:20 p.m. Patrons will have the opportunity to get their photo taken with Girardi and will receive a personal autograph on two of their sports items. A limited number of tickets are available at a cost of $225 and must be purchased online in advance.
The second portion of Girardi's visit will be an open autograph signing on a first-come, first-served basis from 12:20 p.m. to 1 p.m. Fans are encouraged to bring their sport items for Girardi's signature. Costs for autographs are $35 for cards or photos, $50 for baseballs or bats and $100 for uniforms or any other items. Attendees are urged to arrive early to assure enough time to meet Girardi.
The Harrison Public Library Foundation was formed in November of 2010 with the goal of improving and enhancing the library, to support its programs and abilities and to solidify its presence at the heart of the community. Harrison Public Library Foundation Board President Stephen Hicks said he is "extremely grateful and very excited that Mr. Girardi is volunteering his time for our first fundraising event to benefit the Harrison Public Library."
"The Foundation is firmly committed to providing Harrison residents with an up-to-date library that will also be a valuable resource for future Harrison generations," he said.
The trustees of the Harrison Public Library, in consultation with the Foundation, have chosen to modernize and renovate the downtown library facility as the first step in the reinvigoration of the public library.
