Next Wednesday, March 31st, 2010, from 7-10pm, The Bleacher Bar at Fenway Park, 82A Lansdowne Avenue, is holding a most excellent event: A Monster Tix Giveaway…Yep, The Bleacher Bar is giving away TEN pair of some of the best seats in the best park in all of Baseball!
Here’s how it works: For every $10 you spend at the Bar (Food AND Drink) you get a raffle ticket to the drawing for the Monster Tickets. If you make a $5.00 Donation to the Charities, you get a raffle ticket. So if you and 3-4 of your closest friends go for dinner and drinks after work, and all make the $5.00 donation, that is quite a few chances to win…
Proceeds benefit 2 excellent charities: Best Buddies Massachusetts and Special Olympics of Massachusetts. So grab a group and head down to The Bleacher Bar next Wednesday and eat, drink, be merry, and help raise some fund for 2 great causes…
Oh, and you just might win 2 tickets for the Green Monster! Sounds like a win-win to me!
