Even as baseball star Aaron Judge looks toward a post-season appearance with the New York Yankees, the home-run slugger is scheduled to be back in town for an upcoming special appearance when his foundation hosts a fundraising dinner in Madera.

The Fresno State alum’s All Rise Foundation will host the event Nov. 21 at Enzo’s Olive Oil Mill in Madera at 5:30 p.m, according to a news release.

There will be live and silent auctions, as well as an appearance from the right fielder.

Cost to attend was not disclosed, but coordinators are offering sponsorship opportunities ranging from $2,500 to $15,000. Packages include autographed memorabilia, premium seating and sponsorship recognition.

All Rise works to instill responsible citizenship in youth with baseball camps, health and family support for children and fundraising events for programs. It provide grants for leadership development conferences and camps to develop communication, time management and teamwork skills.

Patty Judge, Aaron Judge’s mother, is president and executive director of the foundation.

Judge is a native of Linden in San Joaquin County. He was drafted by the Oakland A’s out of high school, but opted to attend college at Fresno State, where he played baseball from 2011-13. He was a Yankees first-round draft pick in 2013, breaking into the Majors in 2016.
