BUSINESS COMMUNITY STICKS BY THE GIANTS

 BUSINESS COMMUNITY STICKS BY THE GIANTS
 NEW YORK, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- New York's business community is


sticking by the Giants, Crain's Associate Publisher Robert Felsenthal says. More than 250 executives turned up for the first of six Tuesday luncheons at Manhattan's Crowne Plaza Hotel on Sept. 8th and similar turnouts are expected at the next five luncheons Sept. 22, Oct. 13, Nov. 3 and 17 and Dec. 8.
 "Our audience loves the format, the chance to see the Giants stars up close and to ask them questions. You'd be surprised at how much busy executives know about football," Felsenthal says.
 Hosted by Steve Torre of WINS radio, the format includes a short interview of each player by Torre, highlighted by a giant screen film review of key plays from recent games, followed by a friendly grilling of the players by the executive audience.
 "At a helmets-off format like this, the players become candid and can show off their sense of humor," Felsenthal says.
 The second 1992 luncheon, featuring former Giants stars Phil McConkey, Karl Nelson and Dave Jennings, begins with cocktails at 11:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22nd.
 The Crain's Fan Club luncheons started two years ago with a single event. Because of its success, Felsenthal says, it was expanded to a six-luncheon series this year, with co-sponsor backing form HIP and Chemical Bank.
 Individual luncheon seats are $41, with a discount for corporate tables.
