New York Giants quaterback Eli Manning - for Jets fans, he's the one with two Super Bowl rings - is set to headline a fundraiser for Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer later this month.
Manning and wife Abby will appear with Zimmer Sept. 30 at the Madison bar and grill in the Mile Square City to watch the Miami Dolphins take on Manning's father Archie's former team, the New Orleans Saints.
The event begins with a VIP reception, where for $1,000 per head or $1,500 per couple supporters will presumably get to rub shoulders with the Giants signal caller. A general reception will follow that will run $500 per head or $750 per couple.
One thing - don't think you'll pay for your ticket by bringing a bunch of stuff for Eli to sign. He's not having it. According to the invite: "Please note that no photography is permitted, no autographs will be signed and be advised that no paraphernalia such as footballs, jerseys, hats and the like will be allowed in."
Let's hope Manning does more for Zimmer than he did for the Giants Sunday.
