BOSTON — Would you love a chance to win an authentic Boston Red Sox home jersey signed by star outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury? Then like Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on Facebook.
Online now, and running through Monday, May 6, people who “like” Dana-Farber on Facebook, www.facebook.com/danafarbercancerinstitute, will be entered to win the Ellsbury autographed Red Sox jersey.
Dana-Farber launched the contest to generate greater awareness about its online community on Facebook, which offers information for cancer patients and their families and friends, and provides an inside look at Dana-Farber, its services and programs, and its employees and volunteers.
This year marks the 60th anniversary (#JFRedSox60) of the historic partnership between the Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund, which together support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber. From Ted Williams to Mike Andrews to Roger Clemens to Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks, Red Sox players have been quick to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber, including visiting patients at the clinics and helping with fundraising initiatives. The chance to win the autographed Ellsbury jersey continues this tradition and is part of a season-long celebration of the 60th anniversary.
Contest participants must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia as of the date of entry in order to be included in the drawing. No purchase is necessary and only one entry per participant is allowed. Official rules are available online at http://tinyurl.com/9nomakp.
