JBJ Honors Maine Youngster On Jimmy Fund Night
For Verona's Dan and Stormi Wentworth, last night's Red Sox game at Fenway Park will be a memorable one.
After attending a game at Fenway last year during Jimmy Fund Radio/Telethon Days they bought tickets for last night's game because of what they called 'tremendous atmosphere' at the park for all the Jimmy Fund activities.
Little did the Wentworths know that their 23-month-old grandson, Grayson, would need treatment for a form lukemia that was detected in the past year. He is being treated at the EMMC Cancer Care which is part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Care Collaborative.
They wanted to do something so they presented a $500 check to the Jimmy Fund last night and with the cooperation of Red Sox officials went into the NESN broacast booth before the game.
They also spent some time on the field, meeting Jackie Bradley Jr, among other players.
NOTE: The annual Jimmy Fund radio/telethon continues today through the Sox vs Cleveland game tonight.
