The work they do for the children and siblings of fallen heroes is unmatched, and we love supporting them through events, such as Grand Slam Charity Jam,” said Andrew Limouris, President and CEO of Medix. “Thanks to the combined efforts of many, more than $140,000 was raised and will go directly toward helping the children and siblings of fallen heroes find healing and hope.”
The 2017 Grand Slam Charity Jam was held on Saturday, April 1 at Milwaukee’s Wisconsin Center. Headlining entertainment for the night were The Commodores with special guests Post Monroe. There was also artist Dave Santia painting live, as well as a large auction that featured many items, including guitars autographed by Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Huey Lewis and Willie Nelson/Merle Haggard.
