Don’t forget, tickets are still available for New Stars for Young Stars VI, benefiting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Jan. 15 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Jillian’s in Boston.
Not only do ticket holders have the opportunity to meet and receive autographs from Red Sox players and up-and-coming Minor Leaguers, but there is also a buffet lunch, opportunity drawing, silent auction, and bowling to help strike out cancer.
This year’s participating players include Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Robert Coello, Ryan Kalish, Darnell McDonald, Dan Wheeler, Tim Federowicz, Jason Rice, Will Middlebrooks, Jeremy Hazelbaker, Ryan Lavarnway, and special guest former Red Sox player Bill Mueller.
Since its inception in 2006, the Jimmy Fund Council of Greater Boston and New Stars for Young Stars has raised more than $130,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, hosted approximately 250 clinic patients and their families at private parties with Red Sox players, and contributed nearly 1,500 pieces of autographed memorabilia to patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic.
This autograph-signing event provides a unique and memorable opportunity to meet and greet some of the newer Red Sox players, as well as many of the up-and-coming minor league players from the Red Sox organization, and its an opportunity to help out the great folks at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund…
