Red Sox Foundation and Red Sox Wives Host "From Fenway to the Runway" Fundraiser
The Red Sox Wives will hit the fashion runway at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Prudential Center tomorrow, September 18, for the annual From Fenway to the Runway fundraiser benefitting the Red Sox Foundation.
The event begins at 11:30 a.m. and includes lunch and a runway fashion show featuring the Red Sox Wives. WCVB-TV anchor Liz Brunner will emcee the show, which includes a live auction with one-of-a-kind items donated by the players and their wives.
Red Sox wives and fiancé's who will take the stage include: Sue Farrell, Lindsay Buchholz, Kelli Pedroia, Tiffany Ortiz, Georgia Nua, Kimberly Doubront, Isabel Morales, Amanda Bailey, Kelsey Ellsbury, Laura Drew, DiDi Carp, Melissa Victorino, Kelly Shaffer (fiancé of Craig Breslow), and Jamie Niestat (fiancé of Ryan Lavarnway).
Red Sox Foundation Board members Linda Pizzuti Henry and Joan Alfond will also be in attendance along with Stacey Lucchino.
The event, now in its 12th year, will benefit two of the Foundation's cornerstone programs: the Red Sox Scholars Program presented by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, which provides mentoring, enrichment activities and college scholarships to academically-talented, financially-disadvantaged students from Boston Public Schools; and the RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) Youth Baseball and Softball Program, which uses baseball to promote healthy choices and valuable life skills among inner city children and teens.
