John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman are teaming up to help with the charity auction for the Mets' Shannon Forde, who is battling stage four breast cancer. The two are donating four tickets to a Subway Series game next season, which will include the opportunity to watch three innings from the WCBS booth.

The Sterling-Waldman event, along with 12 other packages, will be auctioned off live at the dinner, which will be held Thursday at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J. Tickets to the fundraiser are $100. For more information, go to hopeshinesforshannon.com. For the complete list of auction items, check charitybuzz.com/ auctions/Shannon.
