City of Champions

About Us

This event supports local charities.

On Thursday February 5th, the Levin Papantonio Law Firm and the Blue Wahoos will present a charity dinner event at the Pensacola Bay Center to celebrate and honor the area’s major league baseball players, manager, and staff. The gala event will also raise funds for local non-profit organization —
the Pensacola Sports Museum.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with Pensacola’s star athletes at a cocktail reception and dinner. The dinner will be followed with remarks from Buck Showalter, manager of the Baltimore Orioles, and Don Sutton, MLB Hall of Fame member.

Be a part of Pensacola’s championship history. Sponsorships are available, email info@cityofchampionsevent.com or download the sponsorship form.
