FOR RED SOX FOUNDATION’S 50/50 RAFFLE
DURING UPCOMING RED SOX-YANKEES SERIES
One Fan Will Win Half the Jackpot;
Remaining Proceeds to Benefit the Red Sox Foundation’s Home Base Program


BOSTON, MA – To celebrate 10 successful years of the Home Base Program and the 10th Annual Run To Home Base event at Fenway Park, the Red Sox Foundation, in partnership with Ascend Fundraising Solutions, is guaranteeing a $250,000 jackpot for the 50/50 Raffle taking place during the upcoming Red Sox-Yankees series.

Fans will have a chance to purchase raffle tickets over a 9-day period online atredsox.com/5050 from July 19-27. Fans attending the Red Sox-Yankees series taking place July 25-27 will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets at Fenway Park. The raffle will close at the end of the 6th inning of the July 27 game, and a single winning number for the entire 9-day raffle will be posted online in the middle of the 7th inning of that game. 

The 50/50 Raffle is a fundraising tool for the Foundation and is available during every Red Sox home game at the ballpark, as well as online for fans located in Massachusetts. Half the net proceeds generated from the raffle go to the winning ticket holder. The other half goes to the Red Sox Foundation to support their charitable programs, partners, and grants programs. A portion of the proceeds from the $250,000 jackpot will directly benefit Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital program serving veterans suffering from PTSD and other invisible wounds of war.

In addition to being available online and at the ballpark during the Yankees Series games, raffle tickets may be purchased in person at Fenway Park on July 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from July 22-26 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Red Sox Foundation offices located at 4 Jersey Street.
