Braves Hall of Famer Tom Glavine to Speak at Bradley Sunrise Rotary Gala
In light of this year’s speaker, this year’s gala will have a baseball theme, and there will be several baseball-related items for sale in the gala’s live and silent auctions.
The gala begins at 6 p.m. with attendees being able to view all of the gala auction items while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres. This year’s auctions feature an Atlanta Broadway musical package, an evening with professional football star and former University of Tennessee Volunteer Peyton Manning, several lavish vacation packages, a local television advertising campaign and jewelry. A five-star dinner will be served at 7 p.m.
With 164 victories during the 1990s, Glavine earned the second highest amounts of wins as a pitcher in the national League, second only to teammate Greg Maddux’s 176. Glavine was a five-time 20-game winner and two-time Cy Young Award winner, and one of only 24 pitchers (and just six left handers) in major league history to earn 300 career wins. On January 8, 2014, it was announced Glavine was voted in to the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility with 91.9 percent of the votes.
