2016 An Intimate Evening With Friends
Thank you to all who attended and supported An Intimate Evening With Friends! We are grateful to Joe Torre, The Warren Brothers, and all of our wonderful volunteers who made the evening so special!
On November, 30, 2016, hundreds of attendees were present for our second annual fundraising event, themed 'An Intimate Evening With Friends.' The program featured a discussion with Don Mattingly and special guest Joe Torre, followed by a musical performance by country music duo The Warren Brothers.
The event was held at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science, and included a silent auction with one-of-a-kind items to benefit Mattingly Charities.
VIP ticket holders were given the opportunity to take a professional photograph with Don Mattingly, Joe Torre and The Warren Brothers, preferred seating, and access to a private reception before the program began.
