On June 15, World Series MVP & Champion David Ortiz is bringing the flavor of his native Dominican Republic to Boston at the second annual "David Ortiz Children's Fund Gala" hosted at the Mandarin Oriental in Boston. Hosted by "Big Papi" - fittingly, on Father's Day - proceeds from the festive fundraiser will benefit the David Ortiz Children's Fund, in partnership with MassGeneral Hospital for Children and the World Pediatric Project, which provides critical pediatric healthcare to children in New England and the Dominican Republic.
Tickets now are available for the island-inspired soiree where revelers will have the opportunity to mix-and-mingle with Boston's biggest names in sports and entertainment. Guests also will enjoy a Dominican-themed cocktail reception, live Latin music and dance entertainment as well as a three-course seated dinner in honor of the special works and the beneficiaries of the David Ortiz Children's Fund. All guests will have access to an exclusive silent and live auction featuring priceless memorabilia and experiences.
In December, Ortiz will reprise his role as "host with the most" in the Dominican Republic for the seventh annual David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic in Punta Cana continuing his efforts to raise funds for this international cause that benefit children in both of his home cities.
