We don't like this one bit.
The Harrison Huskies – specifically the Harrison Public Library – has snagged Yankees manager Joe Girardi for an autograph signing at the Harrison Public Library on Sunday, January 29th, from noon to-1:00 pm. The library is located at 2 Bruce Avenue, and the event is open to everyone. Girardi lives in Purchase. if you go, wear your Rye Garnet wear.
(PHOTO: Girardi will manage to raise $10,000 for the Harrison library.)
MyRye.com estimates the library will raise $10,000 with the single hour of Girardi's time. We wish he'd continue on to the Rye Free Reading Room.
Girardi’s fundraiser will be divided into two consecutive segments, beginning with a MVP Private Session from noon to 12:20 pm. 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 is 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 pm ending at 1 pm. 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.
Here is how we calculated the $10,000:
|Minutes||Seconds Total||Seconds/ Fan||# Sessions||Avg Cost / Session||Gross Ticket Sales|
|20||1200||45||27||$ 225||$ 6,000|
|40||2400||30||80||$ 50||$ 4,000|
