We here at SoxProspects.com are proud to call ourselves part of the extended Red Sox baseball community, and when someone in your community needs your help you should do whatever possible to aid them. Over the years many have helped us along the way, and it is only right to give back.
Which brings me to Grand Slam for Sandy, a charity started by Portland Sea Dogs catcher, Jayson Hernandez, who grew up in Jackson, NJ. All money raised by Grand Slam for Sandy goes towards aiding the victims and families effected by Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged the East Coast earlier this year. Many lost power, heat, or even their homes and the recovery has only just begun.
There are several ways you can help this great cause. The first is by attending an event being held on December 14 at the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse on East 11th Street in New York City. Tickets are $25 and you can RSVP by emailing Robert Corsi at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 732-539-0331. They will be auctioning off baseball memorabilia, vacation packages, and other great items and beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be served. If you can make it RSVP early since the capacity is limited to about 50 people and spots are filling up quickly.
However, that is not the only way you can help. You can donate through their website, though PayPal, or by mail. For more information on the charity, the event, or how you can help visit their website or Facebook page.
Please give what you can as every little bit helps.
