Tommy on Saturday, Ike on Sunday

Reminders of a couple of worthwhile events that are coming up this weekend, each intended to give a hand to those who could use it:

On Saturday, Mets fan Tommy LaBella, who passed away earlier this year at the way-too-soon age of 22, will be remembered at the first annual Tommy LaBella Softball Tournament at D’Onofrio Field in New Rochelle, beginning at 9 AM. Proceeds will benefit the Tommy LaBella Sky’s The Limit Fund — whose mission is to “allow Tommy’s spirit to continue to touch the lives of many by giving back to his community” — and the New Rochelle Little League. There’ll be a silent auction of sports memorabilia (autographed by the likes of Cliff Floyd, Johan Santana, David Wright and Ike Davis) and all kinds of fun and games to honor the memory of someone who remains in the hearts of those who knew him best. Visit the fund’s Facebook page here for more information on the event and get a sense of what Tommy meant to his loved ones here.

On Sunday, Ike Davis will be doing his usual big part for Solving Kids’ Cancer and the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative. Ike and several Met teammates will be on hand guest-bartending, and country music star Lee Brice will provide the entertainment. The good times for a good cause start to roll at City Winery on Varick Street at 7 PM, after the Mets kiss off Chipper Jones for the last time at Citi Field. Details here.
