MADISON, MS (WLBT) - NFL star Eli Manning and father Archie spent time at Annandale Thursday as part of a fund raiser sponsored by Bank Plus. The Manning's are here to raise money for the Eli Manning wing of the Blair E. Batson Hospital.
They also took a moment to reflect the tornado devastation to the state and urged everyone to donate to local relief agencies.
"Eli and I wanted to get involved with people contributing to the recovery there so it's just a terrible thing" Archie said. "We're all concerned and our thoughts and prayers go out."
"Really been keeping up with everything going on in Mississippi, with some of these tornadoes and some of these disasters" added Eli. "Been really sad. Trying to give my support any way I can."
Archie and Eli have already raised close to 2 million dollars for the hospital.
