Blood Donor of the Game

The Red Sox, in conjunction with the American Red Cross and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, honor lucky donors with the chance to become the Blood Donor of the Game. Fans are invited to win simply by stepping up to the plate and donating blood to help patients in need.

BoSox Club Luncheons

The BoSox Club was established in 1967 and is recognized by the Red Sox as the official booster club. Each month the group gathers for lunch and a question and answer session with a Red Sox player and alum.

Community Corner Ticket Program

The Red Sox, MLB Commissioner's Officer and Players Give Back have created the Commissioner's Community Initiative. The ticket program is designed to support organizations that assist underprivileged and underserved members of our community with complimentary tickets to select home games.

If you would like to submit a request for tickets please send a letter to Community Relations, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston MA 02215.

Community Home-Stand

The Red Sox Community Home-Stand helps local non-profit organizations raise awareness for their causes. Throughout the season, the Community Home-Stand is host to a variety of groups who are given the opportunity to share their mission with Red Sox fans.

Latino Youth Recognition

For the past twenty years, the Red Sox and El Mundo Newspaper have partnered to honor top Latino middle school students from across Massachusetts as Latino All-Scholastic All-Stars. Candidates must be of Latino origin, have a good school attendance record and a "B+" or above academic record. The students are invited to select games throughout the season and are recognized during the pre-game ceremony. Since its inception, more than 2.500 students have been honored and over 15,000 tickets have been donated to the community.

Library Day

Each season the Red Sox and the Boston Public Library offer Massachusetts children the opportunity to "Read Your Way to Fenway". Children and teens between the ages of 5 and 17 read three books and write an essay about their favorite. Winners receive tickets to the game and are recognized for their achievements during the pre-game ceremony.

Medical All-Star

Every Friday night throughout the season, the Red Sox and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center recognize an outstanding member of the medical community during the pre-game ceremony that is searching for a cure and fighting disease within their respective field.

Mentoring Challenge

Since 2005, Mass Mentoring Partnership has teamed up with the Red Sox for the Red Sox Mentoring Challenge, an initiative designed to recruit more Massachusetts adults as mentors. Since the program began, more than 2,500 prospective mentors have been identified and referred to mentoring programs. Each season, the Red Sox and MMP host the Champions of Mentoring Breakfast and then invite mentors and mentees to attend that evening's game.

Most Valuable Educator

The Red Sox, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Teachers Association, is proud to honor local educators as a Most Valuable Educator. The program allows Massachusetts students to write an essay explaining why his/her teacher, coach or mentor should be honored before a Saturday game at Fenway Park.

Strike Out Hunger

Each summer, the Red Sox wives and significant others host the annual Strike Out Hunger fundraiser at Fenway Park to support the Greater Boston Food Bank's mission to end hunger in Easter Massachusetts. At the gates, a $10 donation gets you an autographed photo of a Red Sox player. Over the past 26 years, the Red Sox wives have joined fans in raising over $312,000, which has provided over 936,000 healthy meals.
