2010 Grand Slam for Boys & Girls

The Boys & Girls Clubs, with Michael and Claudia Cuddyer, tripled last year’s fundraising efforts

2010 Grand Slam for Boys & Girls

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.
