THE GLAVINE EXPERIENCE

CURE Childhood Cancer

Tom and Chris Glavine have been long time supporters of CURE Childhood Cancer.

Every year at our Quiet Heroes event the Glavine’s offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience as an auction item for guests to bid on called The Glavine Experience. The experience gives kids one-on-one time with the long-time Atlanta Braves pitcher on a regulation-size infield in the Glavine’s backyard and time to work on batting skills with the pitching machine in their basement.

This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any baseball fan. Tom Glavine is a former Atlanta Brave and a 10 time all star.

This year a little league baseball team pooled together to win the auction. In addition two friends of the team, Ella Upchurch and Creed Campbell, who are currently in in-treatment were able to attend. Everyone enjoyed their one-on-one time with Tom, and the Glavine’s were happy to be able to provide the experience and support CURE.

CURE Childhood Cancer is grateful for the Glavines support over the years. It is partnerships like this that help us in our quest to find a cure for childhood cancer.
