Ripken Joins Manning for Charity Fundraising Auction

Peyton Manning held a special event to raise money for his foundation with some help from his memorabilia-donating friends like Cal Ripken.

Peyton Manning's annual bowling tournament/fundraising auction was held in Indianapolis this week. 

Among the items auctioned off were autographed jerseys from Mario Lemieux, Pete Rose, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, LeBron James, Brett Favre and Dan Marino, a racing jacket signed by Jeff Gordon, and autographed pin flags from Tiger Woods' 2002 U.S. Open victory and Phil Mickelson's 2006 Masters win.

The Associated Press reports the "goal was to raise money for Manning's Peyback Foundation, which provides disadvantaged youth with opportunities like a Disney Cruise, a flag football game at the Colts complex and Christmas parties for hundreds of children in Indianapolis, New Orleans and Knoxville, Tenn."
