EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) Wednesday night was another big night for Don Mattingly and his Mattingly Charities, Find A Way event. The Marlins manager and some of his baseball buddies got together to raise money for underserved youth here in Evansville.
Willie McGee, Steve Lyons and country music songwriter Don Schlitz co-headlined the event with Mattingly.
Mattingly and McGee say it’s great to team up and help the community with this great event. Mattingly says, “We brought it home, we knew what we wanted to do, we wanted to keep it simple and make a difference in that kids life and when that happens you want to help more and more kids.”
McGee adds, “It makes you feel good that somebody of his stature feels that you can help and asks you if you can do this for him so it’s hard to explain but it’s an easy choice.”
