The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is hosting its 10th Annual Aspire Gala on February 21, 2014 at the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott. The event honors leaders from the fields of sports, entertainment, and business. This year’s Aspire Gala will continue a tradition of honoring those who are truly making a difference in the lives of others.
We are so excited to announce the 2014 Aspire Gala honorees! Special guests of honor include: baseball Hall of Famer and beloved Oriole first baseman, Eddie Murray, longtime winning head basketball coach, Bob Hurley, and Japan’s very own “Iron Man,” Sachio Kinugasa. We hope that you will be with us to celebrate on this very special evening. All proceeds of the event go directly to benefit the work of the Foundation and the children we serve.
The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by the Ripken family in 2001 in memory of Cal Ripken, Sr. to carry on his legacy of using baseball as a hook to teach critical life lessons to disadvantaged youth. The Foundation teaches kids the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle and making smart, productive decisions both on the playing field and in everyday life. Through active community partnerships with over 300 youth-serving organizations, more than 300,000 underserved youth benefit each year from the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation in the most challenged communities across the country.
