‘PLAYERS FAVORITE THINGS’ BASKET RAFFLE SATURDAY!
From my colleague Michael “Mando” Anderson…
Fans attending the Reds vs. Phillies game on Saturday, June 7th (4:10pm) will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for the third annual “Players’ Favorite Things” basket raffle.
13 gift baskets have been filled by the wives and girlfriends of the following players: Mike Leake, Zack Cozart, Logan Ondrusek, Chris Heisey, Devin Mesoraco, Jay Bruce, Ryan Ludwick, Manny Parra, Jack Hannahan, Sam LeCure, JJ Hoover, Tony Cingrani and Brandon Phillips.
The baskets are filled with food and gifts from their home state, gift cards, books and DVDs plus four tickets to an upcoming Reds game and an autographed jersey. Each basket is valued at well over $500.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit a local charity.
The Reds Wives will be selling raffle tickets for $5 (cash only) just inside the main gates to Great American Ball Park (in front of the Crosley mosaics) starting when gates open at 2:40pm to the end of the 7th inning. Fans must have a ticket to the game to purchase raffle tickets.
The winners will be drawn at random during the 8th inning. Fans do not need to be present to claim their baskets.
