In celebration of CC Sabathia and his lasting legacy on and off the field, The PitCCh In Foundation will host the LegaCCy Gala on Monday, September 16, 2019, at The Shed at Hudson Yards.

This black-tie gala will salute and celebrate all things CC – his Hall of Fame career, countless hours giving back to the community, and impact on others as a father, friend, husband and teammate. This invitation-only event will feature celebrity guests from across the sports and entertainment landscape, special musical performances, an auction with exclusive memorabilia and experiences, and much more. Funds and proceeds raised through the event will directly benefit the PitCCh In Foundation.

“Over the last 19 seasons, CC has given so much – not just to the game of baseball, but to his friends, family, and teammates,” said Amber Sabathia. “The LegaCCy Gala will not just celebrate CC’s accomplishments but will also recognize the important charitable work that he has done through our foundation. CC has never forgotten his roots and will continue this work in the next chapter.”

Notable guests of the LegaCCy Gala include Reggie Jackson, Carlos Beltran, Andy Pettitte, Ryan Drese, Johnny Damon, Gary Sheffield and more, as well as a musical performance by T-Pain, celebrity DJ Questlove and emcee Angie Martinez.

“As both a teammate and a friend, CC is second to none,” said Andy Pettitte. “CC is one of the hardest-working players in the game, which I saw first-hand as his teammate. This is why I’m excited to be a part of this event to honor his contributions to the game of baseball. He is a Hall of Fame pitcher and an even better person.”
