Braves pitcher Tim Hudson’s foundation held a bash Saturday night at the Loews Hotel in Midtown. The event featured a swank location, glamorous spread – everything, really, except Hudson himself.
He had a pretty valid excuse for missing his own party, though. He was on the mound that night in New York, where the Braves beat the Mets 4-0.
The party went on, with about 200 people attending, including young people who have benefited from the Hudson Family Foundation’s scholarship programs.
Next up for the foundation, started by Hudson and his wife, Kim, is the second annual ”Hudson’s Honky Tonk Benefit Weekend,” planned for Nov. 19 and 20 and featuring a concert at the Gwinnett Arena with Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.
We hear a mechanical bull will be part of the festivities, and that Huddy himself will be there this time. For information see the Hudson foundation Web site.
