DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Team of Dreams celebrity benefit will take over the Field of Dreams this fall for what Mystique Casino is calling an "unforgettable weekend of events and charity."  That weekend is September 18-19.

Proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Tri-State Independent Blind Society, whose mission is to help the visually impaired improve their independence and quality of life. 

The 2015 Team of Dreams will feature Pete Rose, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, Doc Gooden, Robin Yount, Andre Dawson, Carlton Fisk, Steve Carlton, Mike Boddicker, Jose Canseco and more.

"The response to the first event was overwhelming," said Jesus Aviles, President and CEO of Mystique.  "Seeing generations of families share in the joy of that day was just a wonderful experience," he said.  "We could not be more excited and honored to be able to bring these baseball heroes together again."

The weekend kicks off with a celebrity dinner Friday night.  Saturday features a full day at the Field of Dreams movie site.  It starts with the celebrity benefit game at 9:30 a.m.  It's followed by live entertainment from the Ghost Players on the field.  The celebrity players will be available for autographs and photographs from 12-3 p.m.

The Team of Dreams will then make an appearance at Mystique Casino Saturday night.  They'll be there at 7 p.m. for a series of appearances.  There will also be blackjack, poker and slot tournaments that night.
