On September 29, Oak Beverages (www.oakbeveragesinc.com, Blauvelt,NY), a leading New York-Metropolitan area wholesale beer and beverage distributor, pulled out all the stops as a sponsor for the “Welcome to New York” event for National Football League player Eric Decker and his wife, American country pop singer-songwriter, Jessie James Decker. Decker, a wide receiver formerly with the Denver Broncos, recently signed with the New York Jets. For the event, Oak provided some of its legendary beers including Dogfish Head’s 60 minute, 90 minute and Festina Peche; Einstok’s White Ale, Toasted Porter and Pale Ale; Thomas Hooker’s Octoberfest; Long Trail’s Imperial Pumpkin and Pumpkin Ale; as well as brews from Sapporo and Warsteiner, and Badass Apple Cider and Pear Cider.
The VIP cocktail reception and dinner party was held aboard the Hornblower Yacht and included a cruise around New York Harbor. Entertainment was provided by Jessie James Decker and a special guest and also included an auction. On hand to welcome their newest teammate were many New York Jets, local celebrities and corporate sponsors. Proceeds from the event were provided to the Eric + Jessie Decker Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to positively impact the lives of United States military veterans and at risk children.
