As guests filled the dining room, Uggla discussed his foundation, introduced the players, teased live auction items including dinner with Dan and his friends at STK, signed jerseys, concert tickets and more....and then quickly put his teammates to work.


With the help of STK's servers, The Braves traded in their bats, gloves and balls for aprons - bringing each table a four-course meal.  Dinner was followed by a live auction that raised more than $50,000 for Uggla’s Diamonds in the Rough Foundation, which strives to provide opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need. The primary focus of the foundation is to improve the lives of low-income children and children with cancer by providing daily support and life changing experiences.
