Auction items unveiled for Forde fundraiser
MIAMI -- Hope Shines For Shannon, the organization supporting Mets staffer Shannon Forde's battle against breast cancer, has released a list of items available during an auction and dinner event next month.

Among the items available at silent auction are: a signed R.A. Dickey jersey, a youth autographed Tim Tebow jersey, an Eli Manning signed football, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter signed bats, a signed Tyson Chandler jersey, a signed Willis Reed jersey, Deron Williams signed sneakers and a signed Henrik Lundqvist hockey stick and jersey.

Forde, the Mets' senior director of media relations who has worked in the organization for 18 years, was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in early August. Her family and friends will hold a fundraising dinner Nov. 1 at the West Mount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J., with SNY color commentator Ron Darling serving as emcee.

Additional auction items available at the dinner include a Stephen Strasburg signed jersey, a LeBron James autographed jersey, a Hank Aaron signed baseball, a Nolan Ryan signed ball, a Cal Ripken signed jersey and a Serena Williams signed tennis ball, along with many others.

Dinner tickets cost $100. Admission to a meet-and-greet autograph session with former Mets Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, John Franco, Bob Ojeda, Edgardo Alfonzo, Al Leiter, Ed Charles and Ed Kranepool is available for an additional $250. Tickets to both events are available at hopeshinesforshannon.com, or by contacting Debbie Durante at durantedebbie@hotmail.com or Cindy Santos at tripletmomof3@hotmail.com.
