Mattingly Charities announced their first organization fundraising event will be held Jan. 27, from 6-10 p.m., at Mickey Mantle's Restaurant, located in New York City.
The event, hosted by Len Berman, will include an intimate cocktail reception, dinner, a silent auction, a question/answer session with Don Mattingly and will conclude with musical entertainment featuring talented youth members from The Boys' Club of New York. Former baseball greats Bernie Williams and Tom Seaver, along with former New York Rangers' legend Rod Gilbert, will be attending, in addition to other athletes and celebrity friends expected to attend to support Don's launch of Mattingly Charities.
Founded by former New York Yankee Captain and current Los Angeles Dodgers' manager, Don Mattingly created Mattingly Charities to serve under-privileged youth by supporting programs that promote baseball and softball participation.
"We are very excited to officially kick-off Mattingly Charities and announce a very special relationship with the Boys' Club of New York," said Mattingly, 1985 American League MVP.
Schulte Auctions will be conducting an online memorabilia auction featuring numerous signed collectible items to benefit the fundraising efforts of Mattingly Charities. A Charlie Daniels signed fiddle, a B.B. King signed Lucille guitar, a Rascal Flatts and Martina McBride signed guitars, are just a few items currently posted on www.SchulteAuctions.com, January 31 at 10 p.m. EST.
