Ron Darling Foundation and Bob's Discount Furniture helps local families impacted by Hurricane Sandy
On February 12, 2013, the Ron Darling Foundation donated $15,000 in Bob's Discount Furniture gift certificate money to families that have been severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Foundation raised this money back in December, when it held its Third Annual Texas Hold'em and Casino Night at Leonard's of Great Neck in Long Island, NY. Bob's Discount Furniture subsequently matched this amount, bringing the total to $30,000. The gift certificate money was dispensed amongst ten families - five in Staten Island and five in the Rockaways - all of which were impacted by the devastating storm.
Darling spends most of his time getting to know the minor league
players, such as [Zack] Wheeler and [Travis] D'Arnaud. It gives Ron a
better picture on their games and how much they improve over the
course of the year.
Darling is excited to see the younger guys play because you never want to see them fail and he thinks, "...the true fans want these players to do well and be ready when they come."
So, are you ready for the 2013 New York Mets season? As quoted from a recent article by the NY Post with Ron, the Mets are moving in such a positive direction that Darling is excited to call the games and watch the guys mature.
Check back within the next few weeks on photos of Port St. Lucie and Spring Training 2013 with the New York Mets.
