D-backs to help raise money for Oklahoma tornado victims
Online auction and Saturday's 50/50 Raffle proceeds to benefit American Red Cross
By / MLB.com
PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) are currently hosting an online auction featuring several player autographed items to raise money for the American Red Cross to benefit Oklahoma tornado victims. In addition, proceeds from this Saturday's 50/50 Raffle will also benefit the tornado victims.
The online auction was inspired by D-backs prospect Archie Bradley, a native of Muskogee, Okla., and will be hosted online at www.dbacks.com/auctions. Bradley has taken to Twitter (@ArchieBradley7) to raise money and awareness for the cause. Items in the D-backs online auction include a game-used Patrick Corbin jersey, Cody Ross game-used bat and signed baseballs from Paul Goldschmidt and Didi Gregorius, among many other items. The auction ends at 6 p.m. on May 31.
The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation will donate proceeds from the 50/50 raffle during the 7:10 p.m. game at Chase Field to the American Red Cross for their tornado relief efforts in Oklahoma. In addition, D-backs players' and coaches' wives will assist in selling the raffle tickets at the Community Clubhouse located behind section 134 prior to the game.
