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.

Here are photos from “Respect the Main Event”:
