The Miguel Cabrera Foundation’s signature fundraising event will feature a cocktail party hosted by James Beard winner, Chef Allen of The Café at Books & Books, as well as an open bar featuring Peroni and more. Guests can capture memorable moments of the night at “The Frank” photo booth and bid on exciting items at the live and silent auction. Attendees will be treated to a surprise, private concert by a Latin Grammy Award Winner. The prestigious “Triple Crown” trophy will also be on display for guests to admire. VIP guests will have a chance to meet and greet with Miguel Cabrera, have access to a private area including a top shelf liquor bar and cigar and whiskey lounge, as well as exclusive gift bags.
Miguel’s philosophy was shaped from being the only contemporary baseball player to achieve MLB’s prestigious Triple Crown, a recognition that truly awards a transformational player. Miguel Cabrera’s dream of becoming an accomplished baseball player has inspired him and his wife, Rosangel Cabrera, to focus the foundation on two specific activities: providing academic scholarships and revitalizing baseball fields in schools and neighborhoods where athletics can be used as a catalyst for student engagement and achievement.
