The event, taking place in The Stone Pony, which is located in Asbury Park, New Jersey; is known as the location that helped to launch the musical career of musician Bruce Springsteen, also hopes to be the location where other unique events can be held.
An Evening with Paul O’Neill is going to be certainly one such event, as fans literally got so close to the Yankees great that they could have given him high fives and handshakes as the Yankees Legend shared stories.
Also fans are encouraged to check out the following video look at the event:
One of the coolest parts of the night is the fact that there were moments throughout the event, where An Evening with Paul O’Neill helped to raise funds for great causes.
As the night progressed An Evening with Paul O’Neill had local area artist Craig Mahoney in the building, as he did a beautiful paining of ‘The Warrior,’ that painting got autographed and auctioned off right at the spot, and was able raise $2500 for Asbury Park Little League.
Not only that but there were also wonderful interactions between those in attendance and Brandon Steiner (formerly of Steiner Sports) and WFAN Host Keith McPherson.
It was a night of tremendous storytelling and fun, as everyone got a treat in hearing the stories of Steiner and his start in the memorabilia world, the stories of McPherson and how he was able to get to be a part of the WFAN crew and then the night concluded with O’Neill, who brough a warmth and charm to the evening. Chatting about his time with the Yankees, the journey to the YES Network booth and even took time to answer questions from those in attendance afterward.
