The dinner's net proceeds benefit our local Boys & Girls Clubs and the Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame. It also will help establish a location for the Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame.
Here are the inductees: Holly Aprile, Nancy H. Bromley, Bill Chanecka*,Steve Chomyszak*, Kelsey Green, Bob Holbert, Jim Hoover, Sarah Patterson, John Schultz, Jerry Skonieczki and the 2016 Maine-Endwell Little League Baseball World Series Champions.

This year's keynote speaker is Legendary New York Giant QB (you don't know how hard it is for me to say that) and CBS Football Commentator, Phil Simms. Ron Darling had to back out for personal reasons.
Someone asked me if I was going since I'm a Washington Redskin fan. Absolutely! I like him as an announcer and as a person. I'm told that he has a really good story and look forward to what he has to say.
Entertainment will be provided by Bess Greenberg. She's a singer, songwriter and musician. She's also a member of the Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame.
