Dodgers utility star Chris Taylor has endeared himself in the hearts and minds of fans since coming to Los Angeles in 2016. The 2021 National League All-Star added to the love with recent comments where he stated that he never really considered leaving the Dodgers in free agency this offseason.
Now he’s doubling down in showing that he’s a great person with his heart in the right place.
Earlier this week, Taylor announced a new charity page on Instagram and plans to expand his efforts in bringing “hope and assistance to the vulnerable in our LA and Virginia Beach communities.”
Inspired by the loss of a close childhood friend to cancer, the primary focus of the CT3 Foundation is to raise money and awareness toward childhood cancer. Continuing on those efforts, Taylor and his foundation also announced an upcoming charity golf event in his hometown of Virginia Beach, VA.
The event is set to take place on Sunday, January 16th, from 12 pm ET – 4 pm.
More from ct3foundation.org:
The event will be an afternoon of golf, food, drinks, entertainment, and celebrity auction items as well as musical performances by special guests, D. Vincent Williams, and Kendall Street Company. All proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and Roc Solid Foundation in support of the fight against pediatric cancer.
Prices range from $100 for spectator access to $2,000 for a VIP bay at TopGolf.
For folks unable to make it out to Virginia, you’ll still be able to participate in the auction online which features a wide range of trips and sports memorabilia. Additionally, Taylor mentioned that a live stream of his bay at the venue will be viewable on his Instagram.
