Sandy Koufax at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live February 27, 2010.
18 months ago, there was similar event at the Nokia Threatre put together by T.J. Simers of the L.A. Times to benefit Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA. The speakers were Vin Scully and John Wooden. The minute I found out about it, I purchased my ticket for that event! It was a night that I will never forget.
Once again, T.J. Simers will moderate a conversation, this time with Sandy Koufax and Joe Torre.
Sandy Koufax! OMG! The money raised will go to Safe At Home, Torre's foundation to end the cycle of domestic abuse. Ticket prices go from $25 to $200.
Joe Torre who is in shock that Sandy accepted said "I didn't think he would," "This really is a friend indeed. He said he would do it for me and I' touched."
I am so looking forward to this!
