If you are attending the Reds vs. Brewers game on Saturday, May 7 (7:10pm) you’ll have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a “Reds Wives’ Favorite Things” basket raffle.

Eleven gift baskets have been filled by the players’ wives with their favorite items.

Items include food and gifts from their home state, gift cards to their favorite stores along with books and DVDs, an autographed baseball and four tickets to an upcoming Reds game.

Player baskets include: Jay Bruce, Zack Cozart, Devin Mesoraco, Tucker Barnhart, Caleb Cotham, Blake Wood, Ivan De Jesus Jr., JJ Hoover, Brandon Finnegan, Dan Straily and Jordan Pacheco. There will also be a Reds themed basket.

The retail value of each basket is well over $300.

What mom wouldn’t love this?

The Reds Wives will be selling raffle tickets (cash only) inside the first base side re-entry gate at Great American Ball Park starting when gates open at 5:40 p.m. until the end of the 7th inning. Fans must have a ticket to the game to purchase raffle tickets. Tickets will be on sale for one for $5 or three for $10.

The winners will be drawn at random during the 8th inning. Fans do not need to be present to claim their baskets.

All proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen Southwest Ohio which is the local source for funding programs that provide lifesaving research, breast health services, breast cancer education and outreach.
