Red Sox Foundation Raffling Off World Series Rings
BOSTON (CBS) – What could you and David Ortiz possibly have in common?
If you win the latest raffle from The Red Sox Foundation, you’ll both be the owners of three Boston Red Sox World Series Championship rings.
The Red Sox Foundation is raffling off authentic World Series rings, with the proceeds going to the hundreds of New England charities helped by the foundation.
The Grand Prize is a set of 2004, 2007, and 2013 World Series rings. Second prize is a pair of 2013 World Series Rings, and third prize is a single 2013 World Series Ring.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here. Tickets are $2 each, with a minimum purchase of five tickets.
This is the third time the Red Sox have done this raffle, as they’ve done it after the Red Sox previous two championships. The 2004 raffle raised $1.9 million, and their 2007 raffle raised $1.3 million.
“We hope fans around the world will participate in this unique opportunity which supports the Foundation’s efforts to help families throughout New England,” said Tim Wakefield, honorary Red Sox Foundation chairman and winner of two of those championship rings.
The drawing takes place Friday, June 27, and the winners will be announced June 30 during the Red Sox game against the Chicago Cubs.
Winners will also receive tickets for the game on the day of the ring presentation (TBD), as well as round-trip airfare and two nights’ lodging (if needed), as well as money to offset the taxes due from the prizes.
