Henry and Me The Movie
Earlier this week my family and I traveled to New York City for a #heartwarming red carpet mamarazzi premiere of Henry and Me The Movie, hosted by The Moms. Henry and Me The Movie is based on a young baseball loving boy named Jack . Jack who is battling cancer and about to undergo surgery is met by a guardian angel Henry , who is played by Richard Gere . Henry takes Jack on a trip in a flying car. Jack who we learn early in the Movie is a avid New York Yankee Fan, begins to travel back in Yankee history. On his journey he meets Yankee greats such as Babe Ruth, Thurman Munson , Lefty Gomez, and Mickey Mantle. Jack gets to play baseball in the historic OLD Yankee stadium. While visiting the house that Ruth built Jack gets pointers from the Yankee greats. Jack even gets to pitch to Mickey Mantle himself and strike him out. Once Jack awakens from surgery he is greeted by current yankee greats.
Henry and Me The Movie, which is set to be released worldwide on September 9th on DVD and Digital services such as Video on Demand , Amazon , ITUNES and others. The DVD will also be available for sale at all Yankee home games. What is most heartwarming about #HenryandMe is that not only the powerful message it delivers but that proceeds from all sales will go to over 30 charities to #giveback! Some of the charities who will benefit from Henry and Me are Stand up to Cancer, Girardi’s Catch 25 Foundation, Lou Gehrig Society, CC Sabathia’s PitCCh In Foundation, Curtis Granderson’s Grand Kids Foundation and Pitch for a Cure.
The film which was inspired by best selling children’s books by Ray Negron. Ray Negron who is a product of true yankee tradition. Ray was caught by The Boss George Steinbrenner sprawling graffiti outside yankee stadium and instead of having him arrested he hired him as a yankee bat boy. Over 30 years later Ray is still with the Yankee organization working as a consultant and active in community affairs.
Henry and Me The Movie is based on a young man named Jack who is 19 and a now college sophomore. Jack was present at the premiere and we were so pleased to meet him and engage in conversation. Main Man wished him well and enjoyed talking baseball and telling him how we just took the Lou Gehrig #ALS #icebucketchallenge.
Richard Gere, Chaz Palminteri, Danny Aiello, Luis Guman, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Austin Williams Hank Steinbrenner and various New York Yankees star in this feel good Fall 2014 film, #HenryandMe.
