Own a Piece of Red Sox History - Fenway Seats for Sale!

In 2005, we all initially were paralyzed by the images of Katrina. As the shock subsided, we asked what we could do to help. Like so many companies across the country, we wanted to translate our good intentions into productive action.

And so, we started planning our first fundraiser for the American Red Cross. Luckily for us, Network World stepped up to co-sponsor. And now, we're working together on our fourth annual event.

We hope you'll be able to join us for our December 3rd soiree at the Doubletree Suites in Waltham, from 6-9 p.m.

A highlight of the event each year is our silent auction, and it just keeps getting better. This year's belles of the ball are bound to be two pairs of seats directly from Fenway Park. These seats were removed as part of the annual remodeling and are coming from the dugout, field box, loge box and roof box seats. Just think of what they've witnessed: from Yaz to Ortiz and everything in between. And two World Series.

Other fun auction items include:
  • a signed Red Sox jersey from three-time World Series winner Curt Schilling
  • tickets to Celtics and Red Sox games
  • a private dinner for six prepared in the buyer's home by a locally renowned chef
  • fine wines
  • gift certificates to some great restaurants

We're also thrilled to have Boston-based singer/songwriter Chris O'Brien on board to entertain us. With musical influences such as David Gray, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Dar Williams, O'Brien has appeared at numerous influential folk festivals and won coveted awards such as WUMB's New Artist of the Year, played as part of a benefit for ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition, and was chosen from a pool of nearly 1,000 contestants to appear on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion as part of its People in Their Twenties talent contest.

Whether it's a natural disaster, a fire or flood, we take it for granted that the Red Cross will always be there. Come help us ensure that's always the case.
