What’s Happening

Tuesday, May 27, 5:30 pm at Harbor Park

The Business & Legal Society of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater is holding its final event of the year at a quintessential American venue—the ballpark.

Scoring Big: Bringing the Pros to Hampton Roads includes a discussion with two influential sports business professionals, opportunities for networking, dinner at Hits at the Park, and a Norfolk Tides game.

Guest speakers at Scoring Big are Ken Young, president of the Norfolk Tides baseball team and the Norfolk Admirals hockey team, and Jeff Cogen, a Newport News Native and Old Dominion University graduate who is chief executive officer of the Nashville Predators and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Cogen was previously president of the Dallas Stars and the Texas Rangers.

With 70 years of professional entertainment and sports experience between them, Young and Cogen will share their insights about what it will take to bring another professional sports team to Hampton Roads, and their opinions about the viability of such an enterprise.

The event is open to all Jewish business and legal professionals. Reservations are $10 and include discussion, dinner (meat, with Kosher parve options), and the game, as well as a chance to throw the first pitch of the night.

For more information and to make reservations, visit JewishVa.org/Scoring-Big, email shorwitz@ujft.org, or call 757-965-6124.
