If you know John, you know he bleeds New York Jets green and never misses a game. When John had an opportunity to support the Marty Lyons Foundation at their annual NFL Draft Party, he came running.
“I love the Jets and the draft party is so much fun,” said John. “And I love what the Marty Lyons Foundation does.”
John joined Peter Schwartz of WFAN radio on the stage to help pull raffle tickets and announce prize winners. And John led the crowd in rousing J-E-T-S cheers.
John took photos with many of the New York Jet alumni present including Jay Fiedler, John Nitti, and Greg Buttle. Fans of John’s Crazy Socks were out in force and John posed for pictures with many of them.
John said, “Everybody had a good time and it was for such a good cause.”
John’s Crazy Socks served as a Touchdown Sponsor for the event and donated a box of socks as a raffle prize. “Everyone loved the socks,” said John.
“We loved having John and John’s Crazy Socks join our party,” said Ken Zore, Director of Development for the Marty Lyons Foundation.
We want to give a big shout out to Ken Zore from the Marty Lyons Foundation and Eileen Mayer, the Long Island Chapter President for organizing the event and inviting John and John’s Crazy Socks to participate.
