World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis reports that there’s been overwhelming support for the 2018 Wall of Fame fundraiser.
“A lot of people have been asking if there’s still time to donate,” Davis said. “The answer is yes. So far a lot of people have stepped up to donate and their names will appear on the plaque. These donations will help to offset some rather large expenses we had at the end of last season. The August vandalism necessitated improving our security system. Also, we had a whole new infield installed. We appreciate the generosity of those people who have made donations”
The World Series Park “Wall of Fame” will be available to sign up for through the 2018 baseball season. Those interested in supporting World Series Park can have their name, inclusion of their spouse’s name, inclusion of their family, business name or organization name on the plaque for a minimum donation of $100. Donations can also be made in honor of others or in memory of past loved ones. The permanent 4 foot by 8 foot plaque will be located on the field side of the building.
Donations can be made through the General Electric Matching Gifts Program. A GE employee, a GE retiree or the spouse of a deceased retiree are eligible to make a donation that GE will match. To do this the donor needs to contact the GE Foundation Matching Gifts Center at 1-800-305-0669 and provide them with their Social Security number, 01906 zip code and the amount and date of the donation. Also, inform GE that the gift is being made to the World Series Park Committee, which is registered with them.
Donations to World Series Park for inclusion on the Wall of Fame should be sent to World Series Park, 8 Holden Ave., Saugus, MA 01906. Checks should be made payable to World Series Park. The World Series Park Committee is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization. Donations are tax-exempt. For any questions please contact Bob Davis at 781-233-4555.
