Baseball Prospectus and Issues Concerning Athletes are happy to announce that the fourth annual “Celebrity Bartending Night” will take place on Saturday, March 22 at American Junkie in Scottsdale, Arizona to benefit Amyloidosis Support Groups. Amyloidosis is a group of diseases in which one or more organ systems in the body accumulate deposits of abnormal proteins. Although amyloidosis is not cancer, it is very serious, disabling, and life threatening.
Renowned play-by-play announcer Daron Sutton will emcee the event which will be held from 9 – 11 PM and is scheduled to feature professional players Anthony Rizzo, Adam Eaton, Casey Kelly, Billy Hamilton, Ryan Kalish, George Kontos, and others tending bar. Additional invited guests include major and minor leaguers, front office members, media, and industry leaders.
A limited number of General Admission tickets are now on sale for those interested in attending. The price is $50 per person and includes a sponsored bar. All bartender tips, plus the proceeds from a silent auction, as well as a raffle, will go to support Amyloidosis Support Groups.
So if you're going to be in the Phoenix area and want to mingle with celebrity bartenders and rub elbows with some high profile baseball personalities, all for a terrific cause, get your ticket today!
