Fenway West and The Connecticut Yankee present the The 2nd Annual Rock & Sox Benefit for The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on Wednesday, August 31st. The Yankees descend upon Fenway Park at 4 pm (PDT.) Come on down to watch the game, and then stick around for dinner and a show!
Last year, we raised over $1200 for these 2 fine organizations. Let's try and beat that this year!
You don’t have to be a Red Sox or baseball fan to enjoy The Cancer Sucks Band and Planet Waves as they raise funds for The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. These 2 organizations have been closely affiliated with the Boston Red Sox for many years. This year’s Benefit is part of DFCI’s ’50 State Game Watching Parties’ which coincides with WEEI’s Annual Telethon. CSB will perform a short set of Red Sox, baseball and classic rock covers by Neil Young, John Fogerty and others. Planet Waves will take the stage to finish off the night with their Jam Band Tribute to Bob Dylan. Planet Waves was the house band at Pat Nevins’ recent Bob Dylan 70th Birthday Celebration, ‘Doing Dylan’, at the sold out Ashkenaz in Berkeley.
