Tick­ets for Joe Mad­don’s HIP fundraiser on sale.

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - FRONT PAGE -

Joe Mad­don and friends will be back home next month for an event aimed at rais­ing money for his Ha­zle­ton In­te­gra­tion Project and its Ha­zle­ton One Com­mu­nity Cen­ter.

There’s no word on who his “friends” are yet, but at past hol­i­day gath­er­ings, the Ha­zle­ton na­tive and Chicago Cubs man­ager has been ac­com­pa­nied by baseball le­gends such as Yogi Berra and Manny Ramirez, along with other ML B play­ers, and celebri­ties like ac­tor and diehard Cubs fan Bill Mur­ray.

This time, on Dec. 15, Mad­don will host “Around the Horn with Joe Mad­don and Friends,” billed as an evening of “casino gam­ing” and fun with “celebrity stars,” in a re­lease from the Ha­zle­ton In­te­gra­tion Project.

The event is set for the Val­ley Coun­try Club at 6 p.m., with a three-hour open bar sched­uled. There will be “el­e­gant passed hors d’oeu­vres, two carv­ing sta­tions, in­com­pa­ra­ble sports mem­o­ra­bilia, and a live and silent auc­tion through­out the event,” and dress is semi­for mal, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

Tick­ets are $150 each and avail­able at Val­ley Coun­try Club, Ha­zle­ton One Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, and The Shop2 in down­town Ha­zle­ton, or by call­ing HIP at 570-861-8081. The last day to buy tick­ets, which are lim­ited, is Dec. 8.

Be­cause it is a gam­ing fundraiser, no one un­der the age of 21 will be ad­mit­ted, ac­cord­ing to HIP.
