Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Derek Lowe will host the Southwestern Sports Spectacular, a benefit for the Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida, this Sunday at the new Longhorn Steakhouse in the Gulf Coast Town Center mall.
Proceeds will benefit the hospital's capital building campaign. The new facility is to be built on the campus of HealthPark Medical Center in Fort Myers. The new state-of-the art pediatric medical unit will provide lifesaving care and treatment for children from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties.
The event includes a full hot breakfast, Q&A with Lowe, autograph opportunity and silent and live auctions, including hand-signed memorabilia by Derek Jeter, Brian Urlacher, Wayne Gretzky, Tim Lincecum, Tim Tebow, Dan Marino and more.
Tickets are $50 per person and are expected to sell out. For more information or to purchase tickets call 239-343-6060.
