Meet Eli Manning’s Wife, Abby McGrew
Abby is one of Tom McGrew’s three daughters. She was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Abby, Lacey, and Molly McGrew all went to school at Brentwood Academy. Even though her course of study at the University of Mississippi was family and consumer sciences, she went to New York to study fashion design. Abby worked in New York as a client manager for the designer Pamela Roland.
She and Manning are both proud to have graduated from Ole Miss, and they both give back to the school often. In 2010, they said that they would give $1 million to Ole Miss Opportunity, a program that gives scholarships based on need.
The Couple Does Charity Work For Children’s Health
In 2009, ABC7NY said that McGrew and Manning were going to donate a lot of money to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan, New York, to build the Eli and Abby Manning Birthing Center. The couple also raised more than $2.5 million to open the Eli Manning Children’s Clinics at Children’s of Mississippi in 2009. And in 2016, McGrew and Manning each promised $1 million to the Children’s of Mississippi $100 million capital campaign.
During an interview with the hospital, McGrew said, “Every mother wants her children to have what they need, and when they need medical care, they want it to be kind and close by.” “This is why our family cares so much about Children’s of Mississippi.”
