Red Sox to donate 50/50 proceeds to Orlando shooting victims

BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Red Sox will donate proceeds from Tuesday’s 50/50 raffle to help victims and families of the Orlando nightclub shooting.

The team flew the rainbow flag over Fenway Park during the 7:10 p.m. game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Red Sox Foundation runs a 50/50 raffle during each home game at Fenway Park with half of the funds collected given to the winning ticket holder and the other half to the foundation’s charitable programs.

Proceeds from Tuesday’s game will be donated to the Florida Disaster Fund activated by Florida Governor Rick Scott to help victims and families of the shooting.
