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
Where: City Winery
