Brothers, Griffin Moore and Adam and Josh Lee were special
guests at the Annual Albert Pujols Family Foundation Autumn
event, held at the Gaylord Opryland, celebrates and benefits
those with Down syndrome.
baseballers helped guests out of their cars, walked special
guests down the red carpet and did their fair share of dancing.
“The Lipscomb guys
danced the whole night,” Carolyn Naifeh, regional director of
the Pujols Family Foundation, said in a release from the school.
“They made sure there weren’t any wallflowers and that everyone
felt valuable and welcome. They really made the evening special
for so many of the guests.”
