2010 Grand Slam for Boys & Girls
The Boys & Girls Clubs, with Michael and Claudia Cuddyer, tripled last year’s fundraising efforts
Event: The Grand Slam Event, where the Minnesota Twins served up food—instead of home runs—to eager Capital Grille diners on August 15.
Guest Stars: Michael Cuddyer and 18 of his Minnesota Twins teammates, including TC Bear.
Cause: Twin Cities Boys & Girls Clubs, a safe place for kids to learn and play.
Going Once, Going Twice: The biggest auction item was a bat signed by Twins with MVP status: Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Harmon Killebrew, and Rod Carew, which sold for $15,000. Another popular item was the 500-home-run bat signed by Jim Thome and Killebrew.
Wining and Dining: Patrons were treated to a four-course meal—including broiled lobster with sweet ancho-chili butter and porcini-rubbed steak.
Magic Man: Cuddyer also did magic tricks tableside.
