I have known Ken Thimel for over 20 years. I used to see him with Joe DiMaggio, Don Larsen, David Cone and some of the biggest stars in sports.
I have seen Ken and another sports memorabilia super star, Andrew Levy (who owns a suite at Yankee Stadium) put together some wonderful events for high rollers yet, they have always welcomed kids and the not so high rollers to their events and made them feel great about themselves even though they probably couldn’t afford to buy anything. After many successful events Ken would actually call me to ask what youth organizations could he financially help.
He has always been this way and I have to say it’s a very rare occurrence in a very selfish business.
Ken has a big event coming up this weekend and I welcome all you sports fans out there to attend and participate. Please read the information below so that you can find out how to participate.
