Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV), a Cambridge-based non-profit that provides free tutoring and mentoring services to Cambridge students, is holding an auction that will let you throw out the first pitch in a game against the LA Angels on May 4, 2011, along with some other goodies (Roof Deck seats for four). All proceeds from the auction will go to CSV. The current high bid is 10K with bidding ending on February 10, 2011.
Attention Red Sox fans! Bidding is open for the right to throw out the first pitch at a Red Sox game, part of a unique package to benefit Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) and its many programs in the Cambridge Public Schools. At the May 4, 2011 Red Sox game against the LA Angels, you can become one of the select few to have thrown out a ceremonial first pitch in legendary Fenway Park. Generously donated by the Boston Red Sox/Red Sox Foundation, this unbelievable package includes: the ceremonial first pitch on the mound at Fenway; a VIP pre-game tour of Fenway during batting practice; four tickets on the right field roof deck; $100 credit toward in-seat food and beverage service; and your name in lights on the centerfield scoreboard.
The proceeds of the auction will benefit CSV, the non-profit agency that supports Cambridge Public School students with free tutoring and mentoring programs. CSV places almost 900 volunteers annually in the city’s 12 elementary schools and high school and has helped Cambridge students since 1966.
