Red Sox to donate proceeds from 50/50 raffle to help victims of Orlando tragedy
The Red Sox will donate proceeds from tonight's 50/50 raffle to help victims and families of the tragic shooting in Orlando, Florida, and fly the rainbow flag above Fenway Park during tonight's 7:10 p.m. game against the Orioles. The club will continue to fly the American flag in center field at half-mast.
The Red Sox Foundation runs a 50/50 raffle during each home game at Fenway Park with half the funds collected given to the winning ticket holder and the other half benefiting the foundation's charitable programs. Proceeds from tonight's foundation collection will be donated to the Florida Disaster Fund activated by Florida Governor Rick Scott to help victims and families of Saturday's shooting.
