Going to Bat For Dannys

Today, Jim Gott, former MLB pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that he and his MLB friends (both past and present players) will be “Going to Bat for Danny’s Farm” on Sunday, October 19 at the Sports Museum of Los Angeles.

Inspired by his son, Danny, Danny’s Farm is a nonprofit organization that benefits children and adults with developmental disabilities. With the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) announcement that 1 in 68 children are now being diagnosed as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Autism is no longer just a family concern, it a community concern, which is why programs like Danny’s Farm are in high demand and community support is needed.

“This is truly going to be a great event and I’d like to invite the community to join us for a great afternoon that supports a cause that is close to my heart,” said Jim Gott. “And I’d like to extend a special ‘thank you’ to Gary Cypress, owner of the museum, for opening this amazing venue to us.”

The Sports Museum of Los Angeles is an extraordinary private museum that is open by invitation only. It houses the largest sports memorabilia collection in the United States and has over 30 galleries dedicated to many prominent sports figures and teams. This privately owned collection showcases a multitude of sports ranging from baseball, basketball, football, tennis, boxing, horse racing, cycling, golf and swimming.

Honoring Bank of America’s Tiziana Cordisco as “Farmer of the Year”, this fundraising event is scheduled for Sunday, October 19 with a VIP Reception beginning at 2:00 p.m. and general admission running from 3:00-6:00 p.m. All proceeds will benefit Danny’s Farm and allow it to continue to provide employment opportunities for adults with autism and scholarships for children on the autism spectrum whose families cannot afford to enroll their child in the Danny’s Farm program.
