For $195, fans can get a chance to hobnob with manager Don Mattingly and other celebrities -- sports and otherwise -- Thursday night at Mattingly’s charity fundraiser at the Los Angeles Sports Museum. The evening is hosted by comedian George Lopez, a native Angelino.

All money raised by the event will go to provide kids in L.A. with baseball equipment.

A few Dodgers players, including Clayton Kershaw and Adrian Gonzalez, are expected to attend, as are several former players, including Maury Wills, Kenny Landreaux and Don Newcombe.

The event includes a tour of the museum’s collection of Dodgers memorabilia dating back to Brooklyn and a question-and-answer session with Mattingly. There will be an auction that includes a chance to attend a Dodgers game with Magic Johnson, one of the team’s owners.

More details and tickets can be found at dodgers.com/mattingly or by calling (323) 224-1413.
