Joe Mauer Joins Swing For Impact Minnesota Lineup
Minnesota Twins legend Joe Mauer will be among the participants in next weekend’s Swing For Impact event at Topgolf in Brooklyn Center.
The event — 6:30 p.m., Aug. 4 at Topgolf, 6420 N. Camden Ave. — benefits the Twins’ All Win campaign. Even if you don’t enjoy golfing, this is a fun night to hang out with Twins players for local charities. Entry to this VIP event includes food and drinks, as well as the chance to win autographed items in a silent auction.
A variety of Twins and Twins alumni will be on hand, joining fans in the fun:
- Kyle Gibson
- Jake Odorizzi
- Trevor May
- Taylor Rogers
- Jason Castro
- Joe Mauer
- Tim Laudner
- Jesse Crain
- Glen Perkins
Our last Swing For Impact event, featuring Big League Impact co-founder Adam Wainwright near St. Louis, raised more than $51,000 for the Cardinals’ All Win campaign.
The Twins, currently sitting atop the American League Central, have pledged to donate with each win for these great causes:
- Pitcher Kyle Gibson: The Sheridan Story (Battling child hunger) & Tandem (Support for at-risk mothers and children)
- Pitcher Taylor Rogers: Rogers Family Foundation (Mental health for first responders in Minnesota & his home state of Colorado)
- Pitcher Trevor Hildenberger: Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities
- Catcher Jason Castro: The Sheridan Story
- Pitcher Trevor May: Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare
- Outfielder Byron Buxton: Minnesota Military Family Foundation (Support for families of military personnel)
- Pitcher Jake Odorizzi: Animal Humane Society
These are charities chosen by the players, who have a personal connection to these causes. For instance, Trevor May has been a champion for adaptive gaming, and recently visited Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare to play Fortnite with a child who has cerebral palsy. Taylor Rogers’ original dream was to become a firefighter, continuing the proud family tradition for a 5th generation. The All Win campaign allows him to use his platform as a Major League Baseball player to help first responders in Minnesota and Colorado.
The event also benefits Help One Now’s efforts to save at-risk children in Haiti.
