SF Giants Bruce Bochy and Buster Posey Headline ALS Fundraiser
By Marc Delucchi
Bruce Bochy and Buster Posey headline a Three Trophy Celebration fundraiser for ALS research filled with a number of former SF Giants.
Mavo Books is coordinating an ALS fundraiser featuring SF Giants from the team’s World Series victories in 2010, 2012, and 2014.
The virtual event, called Three Trophy Celebration, comes with a $30 cost of admission and will last roughly an hour and a half, according to the event’s description. It is scheduled on Tuesday, December 1st at 5:00 pm (Pacific Standard Time) for fans to hear some of their favorite Giants discuss some of their favorite stories and memories from their title runs.
While Bruce Bochy and Buster Posey highlight the event lineup, former pitchers Ryan Vogelsong, Jeremy Affeldt, and Javier Lopez are all scheduled to attend as well. Longtime Giants broadcaster Jon Miller will moderate the conversation
The post also mentions “a surprise guest” that will be a part of the event. While this is entirely speculation, #ForeverGiants legends Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum have been known to keep low profiles (albeit in completely different ways).
Whoever the surprise guest is though, supporters are guaranteed an exciting lineup of current and former Giant legends. Of course, they can do it for a good cause too. All proceeds collected after expenses will be donated to the ALS Association Golden West Chapter, which offers support to those living with ALS and their families in 31 different California counties.
It’s a credit to Mavo Books and the many others involved that have continued working to help those dealing with ALS amidst all going on around the world.
