Sports anchor and NFL Hall of Famer to speak at Margate JCC’s Sports Night Aug. 18

Special Events

Join host Michael Barkann and his special guest, National Football League Hall of Famer Joe Theismann, at the Second Annual Jackie & Hank Herskowitz Sports Night from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 18 at the Katz JCC, 501 N. Jerome Avenue in Margate, NJ.

“The evening will be a memorable one for sports fans in our local community,” said Jeff Herskowitz, chairman of the fundraising event. “Guests can see, meet and personally talk with the NFL Hall of Famer and former quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Joe Theismann, and award-winning sports anchor and co-host of “Mike and Ike” show on 94 WIP Michael Barkann.”

The exciting night will include a silent and a live sports memorabilia auction, delicious high-end tailgate style food and an open bar.

Keynote speaker Joe Theismann, the former Washington Redskins quarterback, joined ESPN in April 1988, reuniting with play-byplay voice Mike Patrick after spending two seasons as an NFL analyst for CBS Sports. A 12-year NFL veteran, Theismann played in 163 consecutive games from 1974- 1985 and holds the Redskins’ records for passing yardage (25,206), completions (2,044) and attempts (3,602). A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Theismann led Washington to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII and was selected the NFL’s “Man of the Year” in 1982 for his community service and dedication to the health and welfare of children.

The event has been named after the late Jackie & Hank Herskowitz of Margate for their continuous support of the Katz JCC. Their philanthropic legacy will continue with the Second Annual Jackie & Hank Herskowitz Sports Night fundraising event, which raises money for its scholarship fund to further its mission to provide the children and seniors of Atlantic County, as well as the community as a whole, programs and services that enhance and enrich their lives.

Sponsorship opportunities for this event are available.

General Admission is $150.

Ticket packages and sponsorship opportunities also available, including a VIP Meet and Greet, during the reception.
