Cubs manager Joe Maddon held a charity event called the “Respect the Main Event” in Ravenswood on Wednesday night to benefit local youth boxing.

If you wanted to attend the charity event, one would’ve paid $300 to watch youth boxing alongside Maddon and the entire Cubs organization. The $300 donation included cocktails, hand-rolled cigars, and dinner from Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse.

A portion of the proceeds went to The Crushers Club, a youth boxing club in Chicago.

From DNAinfo:

[“The Crushers Club] is anti gangs and who doesn’t love that?” said Maddon. “They’re also about the discipline and the respect it creates among their members. It was the perfect pitch.”
