About the Event

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we ultimately decided to cancel our annual Evening of Dreams fundraiser which is our largest fundraiser of the year. As a result of it’s cancellation, Team Walker needs your support now more than ever. Last year the “Conversations with Coaches” event was born and was a huge success thanks to our supporters and the A+ panelists in Kevin Willard, PJ Carlesimo, Bill Raftery, Shaheen Holloway & Bob Hurley with Emcee Bob Ley and Dave Popkin. Team Walker decided to bring back the “Conversation” series again this year on Thursday October 7th at Liberty National Golf Club. This year’s lineup of panelists include Dan Hurley, Bryan Caver, PJ Carlesimo and Team Walker’s own Jerry Walker and will once again be emceed by Emmy Award winner Bob Ley.

Proceeds from “Cocktails & Conversation” will help Team Walker continue it’s mission of improving the quality of life for the children of Jersey City through academic and recreation programs that empower the children’s minds, bodies and souls.

Please email Allyson Rowe ( or Bill Tuccillo ( with any questions. Space is limited!
