D-backs, FOX Sports Arizona team up to benefit Going Gonzo for Kids
Diamondbacks legend Luis Gonzalez will join the FOX Sports Arizona television broadcast this Tuesday, Aug. 28, for a special game broadcast, with proceeds benefiting Going Gonzo for Kids.
This is the first time that fans watching D-backs games on FOX Sports Arizona will have the opportunity to participate in the popular Mystery Ball fundraiser. Fans can purchase a mystery ball box for $50 each by calling in to the Mystery Ball hotline at (602) 462-3899 during the FOX Sports Arizona broadcast. More than 2,000 autographed baseballs will be available featuring signatures from numerous D-backs legends and current players. Phone lines will open during the pregame show starting at 6 p.m. and will remain open until all of the baseballs are sold or the end of the postgame show. Fans will receive their autographed baseball via mail, and 25 lucky fans will be awarded a golden ticket to redeem for special prizes.
For 11 years, FOX Sports Arizona has been a partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, raising funds for important charitable causes in the community. In 2011, the World Series Ring Raffle broadcast raised more than $85,000 during the broadcast. In 2010, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation sold all 2,000 autographed Luis Gonzalez Bobbleheads and raised $100,000 to benefit Going Gonzo for Kids during the special broadcast. Funds from this year’s broadcast support a variety of Arizona-based children’s charities.
