After a long west coast roadtrip, the Boston Red Sox are back in town….and need to unwind. The Fenway neighborhood was alive again with excitement and a party atmosphere last night when Red Sox pitcher and Boston native Manny Delcarmen threw a bash to raise money for Boston Public Schools at his 3rd annual BOWLIN’ FOR STRIKES fundraiser.
A summertime funky bowling party presented by New England Sporting Goods Giant NEW BALANCE, and sponsored by WAAF (radio), NESN (tv), and JILLIAN’S – Boston brought-out many of the Sox team and their families. In attendance at Jillian’s were: Manny Delcarmen, John Lackey, Daniel Bard, Jeremy Hermida, Bill Hall, Mike Cameron, Clay Buchholz, Daniel Nava, Jonathan Papelbon, Josh Beckett, Jason Varitek, Mike Lowell, Tim Wakefield, Dustin Richardson, Scott Atchison, Adrian Beltre, and Angel Sanchez. (Quite an impressive showing!)
A fun and festive night was had by all who attended, and the money raised will be put to great use in the public schools of Boston. Thanks to all who donated their time, bid generously at the silent auction, bowlers, sponsors and spectators. (Special thanks to Sports Identity for their hard work putting this event together)
