Brandon SteinerBrandon Steiner, founder and CEO of Steiner Sports, will be speaking at a fundraising event at Manhattanville College on Thursday, December 5.

”The students believe (as do I) that inviting Brandon to speak will inspire and educate all who aspire to enter the world of sports.  Brandon came from nothing and built an empire,” Jennifer Alpert, an adjunct professor at Manhattanville and Executive Director of the John Starks Foundation, said in an e-mail.

The students in Alpert’s event management class are hosting the meet and greet as part of their final project, she said. She used her professional relationship with Steiner to help the students arrange the event. 

Steiner, a Scarsdale, N.Y. resident, will be discussing his new book, “You Gotta Have Balls.” The book discusses his own business and life philosophies that have led him to success.

There will be copies of the book available for purchase and he will be signing them at the event as well. 

Attendees will also be able to enter a raffle to win sports memorabilia, tickets to the 2014 U.S. Open, and more. Proceeds from the raffle will go to M-Club, the annual fundraising arm for Manhattanville’s Athletics Department, and to Family Services of Westchester.

Reservations can be made by email. Admission is free, however the first 50 to register will receive two raffle tickets and space is limited. R.S.V.P. by Monday, December 2.

The event will run from 7 to 9 p.m. and take place in the West Room of Reid Hall at Manhattanville College, 2900 Purchase St., Purchase, N.Y., 10577.
