This year we are celebrating our 15th Annual Aspire Gala which benefits our work with at-risk youth across the country. The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation's Aspire Gala honors leaders from the fields of sports, entertainments, and business. This year's auspicious Aspire Gala will continue a tradition of honoring those who are truly making a difference in the lives of others. The evening includes a lively cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner, program, and special musical performance. This year, we will be honoring Curtis Martin, Football Hall of Famer and former New York Jets running back; Jim Leyland, former World Series winning manager for the Florida Marlins and Detroit Tigers; and Colin Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, for excellence in their fields, dedication to helping others, and for being a coach in life to so many both on and off the field/court. We also have a musical performance planned by DENNIS DEYOUNG: THE MUSIC OF STYX.
The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, working throughout the country with community-based youth organizations to serve at-risk young people and build Youth Developments Parks in America's most distressed communities. Founded in 2001, the Foundation is led by former Major League Baseball players, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Bill Ripken, and was named in memory of their father, Cal, Sr. The life lessons of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic are keys to success for all young people, especially those living in disadvantaged circumstances.
