Busch Stadium vendor's tips helping family in need

ST. LOUIS – Patrick Ferris walks up and down the aisles at Busch Stadium, selling baseball staples like peanuts and beer, and on Saturday, he's donating all of his tips to the family who lost everything.

Ferris is friends with 7-year-old Brian Davis' father. Davis tragically died in a house fire earlier this week. When Ferris found out about the fire, he wanted to help. He's a vendor at Busch Stadium, and he plans to donate all of his tips from game 3 of the World Series to Davis' family.

"It's not going to bring little Brian back but it might help," he said.

He hopes that all of the Cardinals fans will look for him on Saturday.

"It started with wanting to pay for the funeral, but who knows, maybe now we can buy them a home," he said. "With Cardinal National backing me up, the possibilities are endless."

Monetary donations can be made at any U.S. Bank through the Brian Davis Jr. – Sanders Memorial Fund.

Clothing, gift cards, and home goods donations can be dropped off at Bierbaum Elementary School. Davis' father is in need of size 15 dress shoes for the funeral, and his mother is in need of clothing. She wears a size medium/large.
