Ike Davis will have a charity event Sunday night to benefit research to prevent childhood cancer. Here are the details, directly from Davis' publicist:

Who: New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis and teammates, including David Wright, Mike Baxter, Matt Harvey, Josh Edgin, Jonathon Niese, Daniel Murphy, Justin Turner, Kelly Shoppach, Ronny Cedeno, Robert Carson, Dillon Gee, Lucas Duda and Zach Lutz; performance by CMA nominated country music star Lee Brice; and event emcee Evan Roberts, WFAN sports radio host.

What: Davis will host his annual charity event, “A Night with Ike Davis,” this Sunday (Sept. 9, 2012) at New York’s City Winery. This special evening will benefit Solving Kids’ Cancer (SKC) and the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative.

After losing his childhood friend, Mike Lio, to Ewing’s Sarcoma at the young age of 22, Davis has devoted his philanthropic efforts to raise funds and awareness for cancer research. Generating $60,000 during last year’s inaugural event, the first baseman has teamed up this year with Lee Brice, a four-time Academy of Country Music nominee, to host another special evening in his friend’s honor. In addition to the concert, the event will also feature an open bar, where Davis and teammates will guest bartend, plus hors d’oeuvres, raffles, VIP clubhouse access and a variety of one-of-a-kind items that will be auction off.

When: Sunday, Sept. 9
7-10 p.m.

Where: City Winery
155 Varick St.
New York, NY 10013
