New York Mets' first baseman Ike Davis will host his second annual charity event, "A Night with Ike Davis," at City Winery in New York City on September 9th at 7 PM. This special evening, which will benefit Solving Kids' Cancer (SKC) and The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative, will feature a concert by country music star Lee Brice and celebrity bartending with Davis and his teammates.
After losing his childhood friend, Mike Lio, to Ewing's Sarcoma at the young age of 22, Davis has devoted his philanthropic efforts to raise funds and awareness for cancer research. After generating $60,000 during last year's inaugural event, the first baseman has teamed up with Brice, a four-time Academy of Country Music nominee, to host another evening in his friend's honor.
In addition to the concert, the event will also feature an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, raffles, VIP clubhouse access and a variety of one-of-a-kind items that will be included in an auction. If you are unable to attend the event on September 9th but would still like to contribute, you can tip your favorite celebrity bartender online (www.solvingkidscancer.org), or make a $10 donation by texting "IKE" to 32020. All proceeds will support Davis' efforts and benefit SKC and The Liddy Sarcoma Initiative.
