(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) — A collection of three Hall of Famers, three Most Valuable Players, four Cy Young Award winners, a Rookie of the Year, a World Series MVP and 12 former Major League Baseball All-Stars are scheduled to participate in events at the Harmon Killebrew Invitational this weekend to raise funds to build an adaptive baseball field for Glendale Miracle League.

The Harmon Killebrew Invitational includes a celebrity poker tournament at 7 p.m. on Friday at Fort McDowell Casino, a celebrity VIP reception and dinner at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday and a golf invitational at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Funds raised from all of the events during the weekend will benefit Glendale Miracle League so that children with cognitive or physical abilities can enjoy a safe and enjoyable baseball playing experience. Funds raised will specifically assist in the construction of an adaptive Miracle League baseball field at the Victory Lane Sports Park near 43rd Ave. and Pinnacle Peak Rd. in Glendale, Ariz.

Spots are still available in the poker tournament, celebrity VIP reception and dinner and golf tournament. To register in any of the events, go to HarmonKillebrewDonations.org or call Craig Johnson directly at 602-291-8687.

Harmon Killebrew and his wife, Nita, formed the Harmon Killebrew Foundation in 1998 to raise funds to benefit their favorite charities. The Foundation has remained active after Killebrew’s death in 2011 to carry on his philanthropic legacy following an illustrious Hall of Fame career with the Minnesota Twins. The Harmon Killebrew Invitational is held annually each summer in Minneapolis and each fall in Phoenix to raise funds to build fields for Miracle League organizations.
