For more than two decades, Craig Biggio has supported the Sunshine Kids Foundation. His unselfish commitment has featured numerous contributions to the Foundation, including a pool table for the game room, jungle gym and a party deck which is used for activities for the Kids at the Sunshine Kids house.

Every year Craig hosts the annual Biggio Baseball Party at Minute Maid Park for the Sunshine Kids. This event is the always the highlight of the year and gives the children the opportunity to play baseball with Craig and a few of his Astros teammates.
