Red Sox to donate proceeds from 50/50 raffle to help Orlando victims

BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Red Sox have announced that they will donate proceeds from Tuesday night’s 50/50 raffle to charitable causes associated with the attack in Orlando.

The team holds a 50/50 raffle during each home game, splitting the proceeds between the winner of the raffle and the Red Sox Foundation.

During Tuesday’s game, the raffle will benefit the Florida Disaster Fund, which was activated by Florida Governor Rick Scott to aid victims and families of Sunday’s shooting.

The Red Sox host the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park at 7:10 p.m. The team has announced it will fly the rainbow flag above Fenway Park and will continue to fly the American flag at half-mast.

Those interested in making a contribution to the Florida Disaster Fund can do so here.
