'Bobby V' Coming to Aqua Turf as Speaker Next Week
Former Red Sox and Mets baseball manager Bobby Valentine will be a guest speaker at the Southington Chamber of Commerce Celebrity Supper on Jan. 7.
The Southington Chamber of Commerce will bring in Bobby Valentine, a Connecticut native, as part of their celebrity dinner.
The oft-loved, oft-hated manager has been known for his work with the Boston Red Sox and New York Mets, but also served time as a baseball analyst and as a manager in Japan.
Known as "Bobby V" or "Big Daddy V," he most recently spent time with the Red Sox before being fired at the end of the 2012 season.
A Stamford native, he has worked as the Director of Public Works there and currently serves as Athletic Director at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a dinner at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $30 for chamber members and $35 for guests. A silent sports auction hosted by Awards of Elegance will also take place.
For more information or to order tickets, contact the Southington Chamber of Commerce at (860) 628-8036.
