The Crosscutter's 14th annual Hot Stove Banquet is planned for Wednesday, Jan. 15, in the Grand Ballroom of the Genetti in Williamsport. This year the Cutters have declared West End Christian Community Center to be the fundraiser's beneficiary. Special guests for 2020's banquet include Phillies legend Greg Luzinski and ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian.
Tickets are $59 per person and can be purchased by calling the Cutters' offices at (570) 326-3389 or ordering online. This event tends to sell out every year, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets now. Business sponsorships for the event are still available.
The evening will consist of a full-course dinner, live and silent auctions of sports memorabilia, and interviews and question and answer segments with the special guests. Other highlights of the event include the inductions of the latest members to the Bowman Field Hall of Fame and the Lycoming County Sports Walk.
The ballroom doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the dinner and entertainment portion of the event kicking off at 6:30 p.m. A limited autograph session will take place at the close of evening.
