For those of you who are reading my blog in Northern California, I have a special night to bring to your attention.
My friends over at Fenway West let me know about a benefit that is happening in San Francisco, at The Connecticut Yankee bar (don't let the name fool you) on Wednesday night, August 31st. It will be for benefit of The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Faber Cancer Institute.
They will be featuring The Cancer Sucks Band and Planet Waves (which does the best of Bob Dylan) and the benefit is in conjunction with WEEI's Annual Telethon, which will be happening on Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week.
Prizes will be given out all night, and $8 is the suggested admission to the bar that night.
So, if you find yourself in the Bay Area and want to help out those folks who are battling cancer, this would be a nice thing to do. The Sox-NYY game begins at 4 PM (PT), but the event will continue through the evening.
