Nearly $85,000 raised for people in need!

St. Louis Cardinals fans had a chance to compete against Big League Impact founder Adam Wainwright and more than two dozen past and present members of the Cardinals organization during this year’s Swinging for Impact Topgolf Challenge, presented by Spectrum Reach. This unique event allowed fans to interact with the players in an intimate setting and raised nearly $85,000 to continue Big League Impact’s mission to help people meet basic human needs like food, clean water, medical care, shelter, and education in an effort to save lives, restore dignity, and instill hope. 

Participating players Albert Pujols, Paul Goldschmidt, Dakota Hudson, Tommy Edman, Ryan Helsley, Steven Matz, Yadier Molina, Drew VerHagen, Corey Dickerson, Harrison Bader, Jack Flaherty and Brendan Donovan, as well as Cardinals alums Jason Isringhausen, Jim Edmonds, Jon Jay, John Costello and Scott Terry, coaches Oliver Marmol, Mike Maddux and Skip Schumaker, and broadcasters Brad Thompson, Polo Ascencio and Bengie Molina.

Special thanks to emcee Dan McLaughlin of Bally Sports Midwest and to our generous sponsors for their support of this event — Spectrum Reach, Cardinals Care, Boondocks Pub, RTP Outdoors, Anna & Matt McDonald, Rockefeller Capital Management, American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning and 101 ESPN.
