    Raffle for the 4th of July….

    Posted by Christine E. at 10:19 am in Baseball,Good Deeds,Red Sox No Comments

    As starting catcher for the Boston Red Sox, Captain Jason Varitek will suit up in all of his catching gear and crouch behind the dish today, as he has done for so many 4 of July’s over the years…

    But what if you could WIN that catching gear? AND have it autographed and personally presented to you by Jason Varitek at a Red Sox game in August?

    Well, it could happen!

    Jason Varitek and Celebrities for Charity have teamed up to make this once in a lifetime opportunity a reality.

    Valued at nearly $3,000.00 (although you really can’t put a price tag on something like this) This is one what one lucky fan will win:

    • Jason Varitek’s game used and autographed Mask, Chest Protector, and Shin Pads from the 4th of July Contest will be presented, personally by Jason Varitek at a Red Sox Game
    • 4 tickets to a Red Sox Game (where the equipment will be presented)
    • An on field tour of Fenway Park before the game
    • A cash prize in the amount of 716.85 to mitigate the Winner’s tax liability that results from winning the raffle. This prize is withheld and paid, on behalf of the Winner, directly to the IRS ($716.85) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($150.53).

    Tickets are $2.00 each (you must buy a minimum of 5) and you must be 18 or older, to purchase a ticket, as well as win. You can purchase tickets until 11:00pm on Monday, August 3, 2009, with the drawing being held later that day. All proceeds benefit Saints Medical Center, in Lowell, MA

    On behalf of all of us at Boston Red Thoughts, have a great and safe 4th of July…

    Happy Independence Day!
