On Tuesday, November 18, join the celebration of the 100th birthday of Martinez's favorite son, Joe DiMaggio. 

A group of Martinez residents, in collaboration with members of the Sons of Italy of Diablo Valley, are kicking off the launch of the Hometown Hero Project, with a celebration of the100th birthday of Martinez’s favorite son, Joe DiMaggio. Proceeds from the Centennial Celebration event will benefit the restoration of the Joltin’ Joe, a boat given to Mr. DiMaggio by the New York Yankees in 1949 and subsequently donated to the City of Martinez in 1991.

“The boat is almost near completion,” says John Wendt, Sons of Italy member. “Working with the Carpenters Local 152, we’ve put in nearly 3,000 hours of volunteer time to restore the boat and are excited to soon present the Joltin’ Joe in its full glory to the citizens of Martinez.”
