WHETHER OR NOT CONTACTED BY SPONSOR, EACH POTENTIAL WINNER MUST CONTACT SPONSOR DIRECTLY TO CLAIM HIS/HER PRIZE NO LATER THAN 11:59 A.M. ON THURSDAY JULY 17, 2008, BY APPEARING IN PERSON AT SPONSOR'S OFFICES AT 4 YAWKEY WAY, BOSTON, MA, 02215 ON MONDAY JULY 14 THROUGH THURSDAY JULY 17 between the hours of 11 AM and 3 PM WITH THEIR WINNING RAFFLE TICKET, OR BY SENDING AN EMAIL CONTAINING THAT POTENTIAL WINNER'S CONTACT INFORMATION TO redsoxraffle@redsox.com during that same time frame TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS SO THAT SPONSOR MAY INSPECT AND VERIFY EACH CLAIMANT'S RAFFLE TICKET BEFORE NOON ON THURSDAY JULY 17, 2008.

DETERMINATION OF OFFICIAL WINNER(S): Sponsor shall have the sole discretion to determine whether each Potential Winner is an official winner of a Prize (an "Official Winner"). Sponsor's decision concerning the identity of all Official Winners shall be final and binding. To become an Official Winner: (1) a Potential Winner must be eligible to participate in the Raffle under these Official Rules and must not be in violation of these Official Rules as determined in Sponsor's sole judgment; (2) that Potential Winner must contact Sponsor, or be contacted by Sponsor, by the deadline specified above under "NOTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNERS"; (3) that Potential Winner's winning entry must be inspected and verified in person by Sponsor by the deadline specified above; (4) that Potential Winner must execute and return to Sponsor an affidavit of eligibility on a form to be provided by Sponsor before prize is awarded; and (5) that Potential Winner must provide Sponsor with all tax identification information required by federal, state or local law and, where applicable, provide Sponsor with payment for any required withholding taxes due prior to that Potential Winner's receipt of the Prize. If for any reason whatsoever all of the foregoing requirements are not satisfied with respect to a particular Potential Winner, or if Sponsor is unable for any reason to identify the holder of a winning Raffle Ticket or to contact a Potential Winner, then that Potential Winner's Prize will be deemed forfeited and, at Sponsor's sole discretion, an alternate Potential Winner and Official Winner of that Prize will be selected, through another random drawing from the remaining pool of eligible Entries.

Sponsor shall use the following rules to determine the identity of any Potential Winner and of the Official Winner of each Prize: (1) in the case of a Raffle ticket that was purchased at www.redsox.com, Sponsor shall conclusively presume that the purchaser of that ticket, as determined by credit-card purchase records, is the lawful owner of that Raffle ticket and that ticket's winning number and (2) in the case of a Raffle ticket that was purchased at Fenway Park or another specified in person sales venue, Sponsor shall conclusively presume that the person who is in possession of that Raffle ticket is the lawful owner of that Raffle ticket and that ticket's winning number, and Sponsor shall not make, nor have any duty to make, any inquiry whatsoever into the circumstances under which that person came into possession of such winning Raffle ticket. In the unlikely event that an error or problem in the administration of the Raffle results in two (2) or more Raffle ticket purchasers holding winning Raffle tickets that contain identical ticket numbers, then the person who has record of the earliest ticket purchase shall be deemed to hold the winning Entry.

AWARD OF PRIZE(S) TO OFFICIAL WINNER(S): A Prize will be awarded to each Potential Winner who has been designated by Sponsor as an Official Winner up to the limit of Ten Prizes listed above. All prizes will be presented to the Official Winners at Fenway Park on Saturday, July 26, 2008, during the pre-game ceremonies immediately preceding the Boston Red Sox game scheduled to be played on Saturday, July 26, 2008. (If for any reason that presentation cannot be held on July 26, 2008, then it shall be held at Fenway Park during the pre-game ceremonies on Sunday July 27, 2008.) At the presentation ceremony, Sponsor reserves the right to present each Official Winner with a Prize which has not yet been personalized to that Official Winner, if that Official Winner has not been designated sufficiently in advance of the ceremony to allow enough time for personalizing the Prize. In that case, that Official Winner will receive a Prize labeled as "#1 Fan." If that Official Winner still desires a personalized prize, then that Official Winner must surrender the awarded Prize to Sponsor immediately after the presentation ceremony. Sponsor will then promptly arrange for the Prize to be personalized and then returned in person to the Official Winner. Each Official Winner shall be solely responsible for his/her own transportation and other travel costs associated with his/her attendance at the presentation of the Prizes at Fenway Park. However, each Official Winner will receive (2) complimentary tickets to the Boston Red Sox game to be played at Fenway Park on the date when the Prizes will be awarded to the Official Winners. Each Official Winner must accept his/her Prize in person, unless Sponsor approves, in its sole discretion, other arrangements for the delivery of the Prize to that Official Winner.

TAXES: All federal, state and local income taxes are the sole responsibility of each Raffle winner. The taxable value of the Prize will be treated as ordinary income to the winner for federal and state income tax purposes, and each winner will be required by law to pre-pay a portion of the tax liability incurred in connection with his/her receipt of the Prize before receiving his/her Prize from Sponsor.
