Eli Manning gets political: Giants QB will headline $1,000 per head fundraiser for Hoboken mayor

- The Washington Times - Tuesday, September 17, 2013

NFL quarterback Eli Manning is known for huddling up with his teammates, but on Sept. 30 he'll be hobnobbing with politicos at a fundraiser for Hoboken, N.J., Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

PolitickerNJ reports that Manning and his wife, Abby, are the star attractions of the event at the Madison Bar & Grill in Hoboken, where supporters of the Democratic mayor will watch the Miami Dolphins play the New Orleans Saints, the team for which Manning's father, Archie, played from 1971 to 1982.

Those paying $1,000 per person or $1,500 per couple will get into a VIP reception with the New York Giants player, PolitickerNJ reports, while $500 per head or $750 per couple qualifies for a general reception.

Photography will not be permitted at the event, according to PolitickerNJ.
