The Hillside Food Outreach held their annual neighbors helping neighbors gala Saturday Night at the Matrix Conference and Banquet Center in Danbury.

Yankee Legend Bernie Williams took part in the annual Hillside Food Outreach fund raising gala, and once again this year I was lucky enough to be in attendance representing Kicks 105.5.

The evening started off with a silent auction/cocktail party with great deals from area merchants and sports memorabilia of all kinds including lot's of Yankee autographed items. Of course my wife was lucky enough to win one of the items she bid on.

Then it was on to the Dinner/Entertainment portion of the evening which included Bernie's special guest sports talker Mike Francesa.

Bernie Williams has been involved for years with the Hillside Food Outreach, an organization that exists to provide food to those in need throughout Westchester, Putnam Counties and Western CT. Each year they hold their annual fund raiser at The Matrix and Bernie Williams always brings a special guest. Previous guests have included Joe Torre, Don Mattingly, David Cone, Paul Simon, Mariano Rivera, and Paul Shaffer.

There's always some great music as well. This year Bernie brought his full band to entertain and close out the evening.

As always it was a great event raising much needed funds for the organization.
