The Red Sox today announced the club's 76th Act of Kindness in 2012, "Trick-or-Treat at Fenway Park," presented by Stop & Shop. The free Halloween event will take place October 31, from 4-8 p.m., and is open to the public.
Families and kids of all ages will have an opportunity to go "trick-or-treating" around the warning track (weather-permitting), decorate pumpkins, and enjoy magicians, face painting, and balloon artists. Red Sox alumni Frank Malzone, Ted Lepcio, Rich Gedman, and Bob Montgomery will also be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs. Families are encouraged to wear costumes and can enter the park through Gate B starting at 4 p.m. Discounted concessions will be offered during the event.
The event is one of 100 "Acts of Kindness" the club is performing in honor of Fenway Park's 100th Anniversary season.
About the 100 Acts of Kindness:
To highlight and support the important work of many charitable institutions throughout New England and beyond, the Red Sox have been engaging in "100 Acts of Kindness" in 2012 in association with the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park. The acts have included donations, volunteer efforts, and the hosting of community events. They typically highlight organizations and causes throughout New England. Red Sox ownership, management, players, and alumni have participated. The remaining 24 acts will be take place before the end of the year.
