It’s hard to get anyone in sports business to agree on anything, let alone a charity of choice. However one thing that is universally accepted this time of year is that the March of Dimes annual sports luncheon is the place to be every December. Over 600 attendees fill the ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria for a well-run two hour event that features a host of sports broadcasting names spread around the room, from athletes turned commentators like Phil Simms and Boomer Esiason to longtime local favorites like Bruce Beck and Warner Wolf, all joining with an “A list” of honorees to raise funds for the March of Dimes. Every year the event also has a decidedly Jersey flair, especially because so many of the committee members are high level sports execs who live in and around the State.
