« Return to News
Peter Grandich and Company announced today that it will be providing several of its team members, each of whom are beloved former professional athletes in the Tri-State Area, over the course of two nights at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. In addition to the athlete appearances, Peter Grandich and Company will also provide numerous sports memorabilia items for drawing on those two evenings.
“As a fan of harness racing for almost 50 years and involved with professional athletes for two decades, co-hosting an event with the good people at the Meadowlands Racetrack was a natural for me,” said Peter Grandich, managing member of Peter Grandich and Company. “I am most grateful that members of my Advisory Board are making themselves available for these two great events.”
The first date is set for Saturday, Nov. 9, when three former National Hockey League (NHL) standouts will be signing autographs and taking photos from 6:30-7:30 p.m. as part of a special Hockey Night. The three players will be New York Rangers great Nick Fotiu, New Jersey Devils Stanley Cup champion Bruce Driver and Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Famer Brian Propp. In addition to the meet-and-greet, the three athletes will also take part in a race presentation later that evening.
Peter Grandich and Company will then return for Football Night on Saturday, Dec. 7. All-time New York Jets great Joe Klecko, along with his son and three-time Super Bowl champion Dan Klecko, will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Later in the evening, the Kleckos will head to the winner’s circle for a special race presentation.
“We value our partnership with Peter Grandich and Company and would like to thank the members of his board that are attending these two great events, said Jason Settlemoir, GM and COO of Meadowlands Racing Entertainment. “We are excited to host these two nights and encourage all of our racing and sports fans to come out and meet these accomplished athletes.” (Meadowlands)
