Nov. 23, 2010 - PRLog -- The Crowne Plaza hotel is proud to announce they will again be hosting the 6th Annual “Evening with the Red Sox” dinner and auction, with all proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County. The event will be held on Wednesday, February 23rd 2011 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Fort Myers.

The “Evening with the Red Sox” table sponsorships are available starting at $1,000 for a table of eight. Premium table sponsorships will include tickets to a 2011 spring training game.

The event includes an opportunity for autographs with some of the current players, a live and silent auction with Red Sox memorabilia, regular season game packages, vacation packages, as well as local golf and restaurant experiences. A three night trip for four people to Boston to see the Red Sox play the New York Yankees in 2011 with an on field experience will again be a featured live auction item.  

Past years player attendees have included Jacoby Ellsberry, Justin Masterson, Jed Lowrie, Jeremy Hermida and coach Terry Francona as well as alumni players Dwight Evans and Luis Tiant. Red Sox management will also deliver an update on the teams upcoming season during the dinner. Heidi Watney of NESN broadcasting will again be this years emcee and Wally the Green Monster will also be on hand for pictures.
