NY Referees Association to celebrate it April 13
The New York Referees Association will celebrate its 75th Anniversary with a dinner-dance at Leonard’s of Great Neck on Saturday, April 13 from 8 p.m.-1 a.m.
The dinner-dance provides a rare chance to meet and socialize with the finest referees and administrators of Eastern New York. NYRA is hopeful that the five living FIFA referees from Eastern New York, who represented U.S. Soccer at the highest level of the sport, will attend the event. John DiSalvatore, 92, a FIFA referee from 1966 to 1973, has committed to coming.
“It should be a very festive occasion and we are honoring a legend in Johnny D,” State Referee Administrator Howard Rubenstein said.
The cost is $125 per person. The check is payable to the New York Referees Association and sent to Mr. Keith Bantz, 90 East Second Street, Deer Park, NY 11729.
For more information, contact Bantz at 631-940-8400 or Frank Sorrentino at 718-288-7528.
