From our friends at Bader Media…
Giants star DEs Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul were in New Hyde Park on Long Island this week to celebrate the 70th Birthday of long-time Big Blue supporter Umberto Corteo – founder of Umberto’s Pizza who provides the team with their lucky pizzas before each game – including their historic Super Bowl victories.
Umberto donated $15,000 to Tuck’s youth education charity: RUSH for Literacy, which helps local kids.
R.U.S.H. for Literacy was founded by Tuck and his wife Lauran in 2008, and encourages children in selected schools in New York, New Jersey and Tuck’s home state of Alabama to read, understand, succeed and hope. The Tucks’ charity has donated over 21,000 books to over 5000 students.
