In addition to the limited-edition print and two lower-level tickets, 15 lucky fans will win Paul Goldschmidt autographed memorabilia -- and one lucky fan will win a Meet and Greet with Paul Goldschmidt.
-- 5 fans will win an autographed gold Goldy bobblehead

-- 1 fan will win a Meet and Greet with Goldy (package comes with four best-in-house seats, opportunity to watch the D-backs take batting practice from the field and a meet and greet with Paul during batting practice, date to be mutually agreed upon based on schedules)
The past three D-backs/FOX Sports Arizona broadcast fundraisers have combine to raise more than a quarter of a million dollars to support local charities.
FOX Sports Arizona's coverage begins Tuesday at 6 p.m. from Chase Field.
September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, and this telecast will lend support to Goldschmidt and his wife, Amy, who are actively involved with the Pediatric Cancer Unit at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. On Sunday, Amy will be a guest with Jody Jackson and Cindy Brunson on the “Diamondbacks Live” pre-game show at 12:30 p.m. to discuss their efforts to help PCH. Then on Tuesday, Paul and Amy will have a sit-down interview to tell why they became involved with PCH and how fans can lend their support to one of the top children’s hospitals in the country.
During next Tuesday’s game telecast, Jake Harvey will join Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly in the booth and talk about the support he received from the Goldschmidts while he was a patient at Phoenix Children’s Hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia.
