Alan Action recently bought the former first National Bank located in Fort Plain which is the birthplace of Bud Fowler, repurposing it into the Non-profit Art Space ‘NYSAB’ and subsequently championing the Hall Of Fame Drive For Bud Fowler, the first professional black baseball player who was inducted into the Hall Of Fame on December 6th 2021 following the construction of a monument just five months before the induction. In a related development, the acclaimed special event planner is set to present the Toys For Tots Holiday Gala at The New York State Arts Bank in Fort Plain New York as he continues in the pursuit of recognizing the amazing feats achieved by certain sportsmen.
The festivities will take place on December 18th at 6 pm at 33 Canal Street Fort Plain, New York with the United Sates Marine Corp Toys For Tots at NYSAB New York State Arts Bank. It will feature fun and exciting activities, including artifacts, music, comedy, and food as well as Grand Gala to honour and commemorate Bud Fowler and Thurman Munson.
The series of events, which include the installation of the Thurman Munson Memorial in an effort to get the legendary baseball player and Great Yankee into the Hall of Fame, also serves as charity to promote the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots program for children. The event will feature uniformed USMC marines collecting toys for needy children as well as popular headline NYC comedians, such as Sean Lynch of famed MTV Celebrity Death Match in attendance. There will also be a full fashion show, which will feature 20 models, produced by Alan Action in collaboration with NYC fashion designer, Xxcari.
Other activities lined up for the event include live vocalists and artists from the Local Mohawk Valley Area, and art gallery displays, all taking place in the iconic former Fort Plain First National Bank. Celebrities from all industries have been invited to be a part of this laudable initiative described by Alan Action as ‘A historic, Charitable and relevant event.’
Alan, who was instrumental in the induction of Bud Flower, the first black Afro-American professional baseball player, manager, and club organizer who preceded Jackie Robinson, into the baseball hall of fame, is looking to replicate same with Thurman Munson. The New York State Arts Bank has created a monument, rock garden, and a memorial in honour of Bud Fowler to create greater awareness for this phenomenal baseball figure and proclaim his historical significance to educate all Americans and the world about his exceptional baseball skills and organizing capabilities amidst adversities.
The under-celebrated baseball player and Great Yankee, Thurman Munson, played just over 11 years as his life was cut short by a terrible airplane accident. However, he was able to make his mark in the game, amassing an incredible record worthy of a hall of fame induction. Consequently, Alan Action and his team have constructed a beautiful monument made out of repurposed original marble from the banks construction, and planted it onto the ground. The goal is to bring awareness to the feats achieved by Thurman Munson and subsequently get him inducted as a baseball hall of famer.
