New Stars For Young Stars

On January 9th, a special event will be taking place at Jillian's Boston.

"New Stars For Young Stars" will feature the newest and upcoming Boston Red Sox stars doing an autograph session to benefit The Jimmy Fund. It will happen from 11:15 AM to 1:30 PM that day.

The featured players will include outfielder Josh Reddick, pitcher Manny Delcarmen, outfielders Jeremy Hermida and Ryan Westmoreland, Red Sox 2009 "Minor League Player of the Year" Ryan Kalish, and Red Sox "Minor League Pitcher of the Year" Casey Kelly. Former Red Sox great and 2004 World Series Champion Trot Nixon will also take part in the event.

Tickets are available at www.jimmyfund.org/new-stars and there are two types of tickets available: MVP, which is $250 and will get you an official MLB jersey and one of the first 30 spots in line. The regular admission is $150, and every ticket holder can bring a guest, but only the ticket holders can receive autographs. A buffet lunch will also be served and sports memorablila will be on sale. There will also be a silent auction, an opportunity drawing and bowling to help strike out cancer.

The New Stars For Young Stars has proven to be a popular event among Red Sox fans, and since its founding in 2006, they have raised over $100,000 in benefit of The Jimmy Fund.
