ATLANTA -- Carlos Beltran has announced plans to hold his second annual "Night in Old San Juan" Charity Gala in St. Louis. The event, which will benefit the Carlos Beltran Foundation, has been scheduled for 7:10 p.m. CT at the Four Seasons hotel on Sunday, Aug. 11.

The night will feature food and music from Puerto Rico, as well as a performance from dancer Chelsie Hightower of the television show Dancing With the Stars. Sports memorabilia and vacations will be sold during a live and silent auction.
