Major League Baseball recently completed the 80th run of its annual All Star Week.

The “Going Beyond” theme of this year’s event was achieved when the league collected more than $7 million in donations to charitable organizations. The events were held during and leading up to the midsummer ritual and included an All-Star Workout Day in St. Louis’ Busch Stadium.

MLB Charities and Cardinals Care plan to distribute approximately $5 million to various local and national charities. The proceeds will be allotted to the following organizations: Stand Up To Cancer, Boys' and Girls' Clubs of America, Feeding America, Prostate Cancer Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Teach For America.

Other supporting organizations include Bank of America, MasterCard, Holiday Inn, State Farm, and Anheuser-Busch. With friends like these, next year’s All-Star week will be even more successful!
