Rangers Press Release
Texas Rangers Wives to partner with Texas Rangers Foundation on fundraiser to benefit Christopher Lane Memorial Fund
Grab Bag Sale to take place during Rangers-Angels game on Saturday, September 28
Arlington, Texas-The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation today announced that it will partner with the Texas Rangers Wives to hold a special fundraiser during the club's game with the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, September 28.
Part of the proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Christopher Lane Memorial Fund. The fund was originally established by friends and the Essendon Baseball Club out of Australia to be used to repatriate Christopher along with the associated travel and funeral costs. More than $150,000 was raised originally and the family will create an ongoing legacy using those funds and funds raised through this sale along with any other future donations. The exact nature of the legacy will be named by the family at a later date.
During the fundraiser, fans will be able to purchase "grab bags" that will contain autographed baseballs, game-used bats, and jerseys from current and former Rangers. The grab bags will be priced at $50.00, $100.00, or $200.00.
In addition, a silent auction will be held for autographed jerseys of Australian-born pitchers Travis Blackley of the Rangers and Grant Balfour of the A's.
The Grab Bag Sale will take place from 4:30 until 8:30 p.m. or while the items last at the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation Kiosk, which is located on the third base concourse near section 13 and the escalators. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.
