    -Peyton Manning anchors fundraiser to help pediatric patients' families-

    "Peyton Manning was in town (Indianapolis) Friday to support the hospital that bears his name. And that's what he wanted to talk about.

    Not DeflateGate. Not New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

    The kids are what Manning cares about.

    The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback is throwing his considerable support behind an $8 million campaign to build a home away from home for families of seriously ill children undergoing treatment at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent.

    St. Vincent House, to be built on St. Vincent's 86th Street campus, will have 20 private rooms, a chapel and a community room for use by families who live more than 30 miles away. There will be no charge for families to use the facility. ...

    "I am truly honored to be affiliated with a pediatric facility that not only provides an array of comprehensive services for patients across the state of Indiana, but that caters to the mind, body and spirit of the entire family," Manning said.

    - Peyton Manning and Dierks Bentley Duet on ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ -

    "When football star Peyton Manning celebrates something, he invites all of his famous friends to the party. Dierks Bentley was on hand at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital on Friday night (May 8), and took the stage with the sportsman for a duet of the Johnny Cash classic “Folsom Prison Blues.”

    Manning’s hospital held its 8th Annual Celebration of Caring Gala at the hospital in Indianapolis. Even though he’s no longer a Colt, the player still give back to the Indy community, and he asked Bentley to come give a helping hand, too.

    The country singer rocked his normal concert uniform of a graphic T-shirt and jeans, but Manning was dapper in a blue suit and red tie. Although Manning may not be quite as talented a vocalist as Bentley, it was still a once-in-a-lifetime performance to witness. Manning gave it his all nonetheless and, of course, it was for the kids. Bentley smiled and laughed alongside the football player." ...
