The Rays host a number of charity events over the course of the year, but this one -- the "Rays on the Runway" event -- is probably my favorite. Not only do the proceeds go to support local children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses, but you get to see Rays' players all gussied up. Last year Reid Brignac showed up with a really fabulous bow-tie, and the mere thought of it still makes me chuckle.
