Last night Buster Posey and his wife Kristen hosted a gala to raise money for the V Foundation for pediatric cancer research. It was off the charts! The passion and dedication that the Posey`s have to help kids is unbelievable. They are my kind of people.

Buster Posey, a baseball superstar, MVP, Rookie of the Year, three times World Series champ has never forgotten where he came from. He and his wife do so much including extending a hand to help young kids.

Winner of American Idol, Phillip Phillips, entertained and did a fantastic job. It was a wonderful night with laughter, emotion and jubilation as we raised $500,000 for kids battling cancer. It was awesome with a capital A!

I am a big fan of tennis. My two daughters played in college ay Notre Dame. I love the sport and I really enjoy attending the U. S. Open.

You get to see the biggest names in the sport, up close and personal. Whether it is Serena Williams or Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray or Venus Williams, the big names are right in front of you. Catch them on the court at Ashe or even on the practice courts.

It is great to see the emotion of the sport in person. There were a lot of great matches while I was in attendance. I also enjoyed meeting a lot of avid sports fans. Flushing Meadow is a great venue and I had a blast at the Open!
