BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WXYZ) - Detroit Tiger's first baseman Prince Fielder is hosting a benefit dinner August 2nd at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham for two non-profit organizations in the state.
Fielder and his wife Chanel are having a wine tasting called Uncork for a Cause to raise funds and awareness for Common Ground and Ele's Place, two crisis management organizations providing support to families in crisis.
The event is a chance for the public to meet and mingle with the Detroit Tigers' slugger and this year's Home Run Derby champion as he releases a limited supply of his 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
There is a $75 admission price for the event, which features wine tasting and entrees from the Townsend's award winning Rugby Grille. There will also be an auction where guests can bid for sports memorabilia.
There will also be an exhibit of travel opportunities to some of the premium winery destinations in California's Napa Valley.
The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is made from premium red grapes of St. Helena in northern California. Autographed bottles will be available for guests to enjoy at home.
The event will be held Thursday, August 2nd on an off day for Fielder.
Tickets to support Uncork for a Cause and its benefit to Common Ground and Ele's Place can be obtained at Uncorkforacause.com .
