High Socks for Hope Fundraiser

Come support a worthy cause and get a drink from Crimson Tide baseball standout and current Yankee pitcher David Robertson!

Former Crimson Tide standout and current New York Yankees pitcher David Robertson will guest bartend on Wednesday, July 27 from 7-9 p.m. at Foley's NY Pub and Restaurant to raise money for victims of the April 27 tornado in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Foley’s will donate half of its proceeds that evening to the High Socks for Hope fund, established by David with his wife, Erin, to help people who live in Tuscaloosa rebuild their lives. All of David’s tips from bartending will go to the fund, as will the proceeds from photographs and baseballs that he signs at the event. There will also be an auction for prizes including Yankee memorabilia and a chance to have lunch with David at Foley’s.

Additionally, Foley’s will rename one of its top selling items, chicken pot pie, after the Robertsons’ and will donate a portion of its ongoing sales to High Socks for Hope. Foley’s named menu items – including Nick Swisher’s Swish & Chips, the David Wright Sandwich, and the George Martin Sandwich – have raised thousands of dollars for the athletes’ charities.
