WhyHunger auctioning Yankees experiences to fight hunger

Tweet [1]

The charitable organization WhyHunger [2]— the name pretty much speaks for itself — is working to fight poverty and hunger, and this week they’re holding their annual Hungerthon, which is being broadcast on several local radio stations. The first day of the Hungerthon was over the weekend, but it picks up again tomorrow, and the organization is auctioning a few very cool Yankees related items. Granted, these things aren’t cheap, but if you’d like to make a smaller donation just to feel good about it, I’m sure they wouldn’t say no.

These are the Yankees items they’re offering. Fair warning, jealousy might lie ahead…

Field visit for two children, provided by Yankees COO Lonn Trost [3]
A once in a lifetime field visit for two children (ages 7-14) prior to a non-premium regular season 2013 game on a mutually agreeable date; two parents can observe field visit from field MVP seats on the third base-side. They will receive four tickets (two for children attending, two for observing adults) in the Field MVP seats.

Two Coaches Clinic slots for the 2013 season [4]
Let your child (age 7-14) live out a dream! Your son or daughter will be able to take part in a pre-game coaches clinic on the field at Yankee Stadium. Two adults will get to watch from the stands. Afterwards, all three will take in the Yankees game, but not before a pre-game visit to the WCBS Broadcast booth and a meet and greet with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Coaches Clinic is a date set by the team and has yet to be announced.

Yankees dugout visit for one child, plus tickets and visit with Suzyn and John [5]
Your child (age 7-14) will take part in a pre-game visit to the Yankees dugout during batting practice prior to a Yankees home game during the 2013 season. Three other guests will watch from the stands. All four will get tickets to the game. The package includes a pre-game visit to the WCBS Yankee Radio Broadcast Booth to meet John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.
