Morgan Wallen has officially returned to the stage, marking his first concert since his vocal cord injury at Wrigley Field in Chicago over the weekend. And along with a significant return, comes a significant donation from Wallen.
Before his second sold-out night at Wrigley Field, the country sensation extended a heartfelt invitation to students from two nearby high schools. Together, they had the honor of presenting a generous $100,000 check aimed at fostering the remodeling of South Chicago’s Bessemer Park baseball field.
“MWF combines my love of sports, music and community service. Without sports and music, I don’t know where I’d be. I know my life would look a whole lot different, so I want to give great opportunities to kids in these areas. MWF also lends a hand when we see communities in need.” Wallen said in a press release.
Wallen’s noteworthy contribution to the local field, which serves as the home base for Baker and Bowen High School students, follows a $150,000 donation from the Cubs Charities. The combined generosity of Wallen and the Cubs Charities has amounted to a remarkable $250,000 donation towards the park, a significant contribution that will play a pivotal role in completely renovating the facility.
The renovation project aims to transform the park into a modernized haven for baseball enthusiasts. The upgrades will include a fully revamped, state-of-the-art baseball diamond featuring a brand-new backstop, enhanced side wings, and improved dugouts, including extended side wings. Moreover, the renovation efforts will extend to rehabilitating the playing surface to accommodate multiple levels of play, ensuring an outstanding experience for all participants.
