August 20th, 2009
Through Monday, August 24, The WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon is holding the 2009 All-Star Online Auction, a great opportunity to bid on sixteen once in a life time experiences and items, while also supporting the lifesaving mission of the Jimmy Fund, which is raising critical funds for pediatric and adult cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
Here are just some of the items up for bid (Certain restrictions apply to all auction items):
Kelly Clarkson Meet & Greet VIP Concert Experience for Two: A rare opportunity to not only meet the hit-maker and first American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson in concert, but also choose the venue! The auction winner and one (1) guest will make their way to the city of their choice where they’ll meet Kelly prior to a show on her current tour (beginning August 14 and running through December) and enjoy a brief conversation, and then stay for the performance.
Throw First Pitch at the Red Sox Game on August 27 with Denis Leary & Lenny Clarke: What better way to celebrate the baseball season at Fenway Park than with rabid Red Sox fans Denis Leary and Lenny Clarke! At the start of the August 27 game, the winner will be escorted onto the field to throw the first pitch of the game, then-along with the winner’s guest-join the stars in the WEEI Sports Radio Network Suite to watch the game as well as enjoy an extended meet and greet with Leary and Clarke.
Meet & Greet with Jersey Boy Frankie Valli in Boston for Two, Plus a Signed Jersey Boys Souvenir Book: The winner and guest will have the chance to watch Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in concert from VIP seats at the Wang Theatre in Boston on November 7, then go backstage afterward to meet the original “Jersey Boy.”
New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Weekend Package with Airfare and More: Witness the rivalry that’s nearly as old as baseball itself: Yankees versus Red Sox games on the weekend of September 26 & 27, 2009 at Yankee Stadium in New York. The winner and a guest will fly to the game on American Airlines and dine at BLT Steak in NYC during their stay.
Score a Home Game From Inside the Green Monster at Fenway Park: The Green Monster-the enormous left field wall (tallest of any in Major League Baseball) at Fenway Park in Boston-has stood as home to the park’s scoreboard since 1912! Here’s the chance for the winner and a friend to score three innings of a 2010 home game from inside the wall and then catch the rest of the match from atop the legendary “monster.”
