FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 9, 2014) – Party in the Park passes, which include entry into JetBlue Park, dinner on the Green Monster courtesy of Rib City and batting practice swings on the field, are still available for purchase for the third annual Party in the Park on Thursday, Oct. 16 at from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Party in the Park passes are $50 per person and $25 for children younger than 12.

Guests will have the opportunity to take batting practice on the field at JetBlue Park, tour the facility and bid on one-of-a-kind silent auction items and raffle prizes including weekend getaways, an opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Red Sox Spring Training game, autographed memorabilia from current and past Red Sox players, and more. All funds raised will be used by the Red Sox Foundation to support the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida and the Immokalee Foundation. Last year’s event raised more than $40,000 to support the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Inc.

“Our Party in the Park is a great way for guests to support our local public schools while enjoying a great evening at the ballpark,” said Katie Haas, senior director of Florida business operations for the Boston Red Sox.

This year’s event is presented by The Boston Globe and The Hertz Corporation and is sponsored by Lee Memorial Health Systems Foundation, Marco Island Marriott, CVS Caremark, FAS Global International LLC, Westin Resort Cape Coral, FedEx, DLD Builders, Aramark, Jerseys Sports Café, Service Painting of SW Florida, Gerber Collision, Marquis Wealth Management, Suncoast Beverage, First Watch Restaurants and Rib City.

Founded in 1981, the mission of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida (CAC) is to improve the lives of children and their families through a coordinated response to child abuse and neglect.

The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence.

The Red Sox Foundation is a 501(c)(3) and the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox. The Foundation’s primary focus locally is in serving the health, education, recreation and social service needs of children and families across Southwest Florida. The Red Sox Foundation is one of the most successful in all of Major League Baseball.
