There's no purchase necessary to enter the sweepstakes, and participants also have the chance to win Red Sox tickets and autographed items; the team said proceeds from it will go to the Red Sox Foundation and the David Ortiz Children's Fund.
The foundation is the official team charity of the Red Sox and supports the health, education and recreational opportunities of people in need across New England. The David Ortiz Children's Fund works to provide quality health care to children in New England and the Dominican Republic.
