New York Post: The Rumble
Dec. 12, 2010
Darryl Strawberry spent more than three hours signing autographs, taking photos and raising money during ICAP’s Annual Charity Day Wednesday in Jersey City on behalf of Tuesday’s Children. ICAP, one of the world’s premier brokers, raised $19 million worldwide for more than 200 global charities, including Tuesday’s Children, which Strawberry represents.
“I know the Mets have been heavily involved in helping the police, firefighters and families from 9/11,” Strawberry said. “I couldn’t say no.”
Other notables on hand included Giants coach Tom Coughlin, Jim Brown and Sarah Jessica Parker.
