BOSTON -- To help launch his charitable organization, Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids, Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis is inviting local baseball fans and philanthropists to join him for a night of laughter and giving at the Organization's First Annual "Crackin' it Up!" Fundraiser. The event will be held at Mohegan Sun Casino in the Uncas ballroom, in Uncasville, Conn. on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2007 at 6 p.m.
The evening will commence with a "Pre-Game Report" including a Silent Auction Preview featuring an extensive silent auction including Red Sox memorabilia as well as decadent diamond jewelry and many other exciting and unique auction items. The "First Pitch" will start at 6:30 p.m. and will consist of a Cocktail Reception including a raw bar and live jazz music. The "7th Inning Stretch" is an amazing sit-down dinner followed by everyone's favorite "Sweet Caroline" Comedy Show hosted by Boston-born comedian Mike O'Malley of CBS' Yes Dear. The comedy event which features a "Newlywed" style show scripted by Saturday Night Live's own Seth Meyers will involve Kevin Youkilis his significant other Enza Sambataro and other Red Sox players, each with their significant others.
"Hits for Kids is committed to making a big difference for children in need. We are planning multiple events in order to raise funds and awareness for charities with less visible awareness," said Youkilis. "Crackin' it Up!" is our kick-off event and it promises to be a stellar evening. I believe people will feel good knowing that all proceeds will benefit under funded children's charities in which Youk's Kids supports."
"Crackin' it Up!" will also include a variety of exciting guest speakers. Kevin Youkilis will describe the mission of Hits for Kids and highlight the various organizations that will benefit from the generosity of donors. Christopher Small, Executive Director of the Italian Home, will explain how the Home offers boys and girls who have been mentally, physically and sexually abused a safe haven and a chance to rebuild their young lives.
