23rd annual Red Sox Wives "Strike out Hunger" fundraiser

BOSTON, MA - The 23rd annual Red Sox Wives "Strike Out Hunger" fundraiser will take place this Friday, August 1, and Saturday, August 2, at Fenway Park. The annual event raises funds for the Greater Boston Food Bank through a collection of donations from fans at Fenway Park gates each summer.

Starting at 5:10 p.m. on Friday, and 2:05 p.m. Saturday, fans can make a cash donation at all Fenway Park gates. The Red Sox Wives will give autographed pictures of Red Sox players to fans that make a $10 donation. The fundraiser runs until the second inning, and the Red Sox Wives will greet fans at the gates until first pitch. 

Fans will also have a "Text to Give" opportunity to make donations throughout the game by texting SOX to 20222.

Over the past 22 years, the event has raised enough funds to provide 849,000 meals to those in need across eastern Massachusetts.
