Please join us on the evening of May 29th, 2019 for the first ever EMS Night at Fenway, where the Boston Red Sox will play the Cleveland Indians. $5 from every ticket purchased through www.redsox.com/EMS will go toward benefiting the National EMS Memorial Foundation.
While this is not the only Major League Baseball game honoring EMS professionals and benefiting the National EMS Memorial Foundation, we need your help to make it an annual event in Boston. The Red Sox have set aside hundreds of seats for us and we aim to fill every one of them. We hope for such a positive response that this becomes a national trend across all Major League Baseball teams.
Tickets are already selling, and group options will run out soon, so don’t wait.
If you are getting this message, you recognize the importance of honoring EMS professionals. We encourage you to let others know about this event, beyond your colleagues in uniform; invite friends, family, and anyone who has or might one day be positively impacted by your work. I have attached a flyer which you are welcome to disseminate broadly. If you promote the event on social media, we have attached an image file that can be attached to your post. Please use the following hashtags: #EMSNight #EMSMemorial #RedSox
Tickets must be purchased at www.redsox.com/ems.
Unfortunately, in the business of saving lives, there are times when the call of duty leads to the ultimate sacrifice. The National Memorial EMS Foundation is working tirelessly to create a monument in our Nation’s Capital. On November 3rd, the Memorial Foundation achieved a major milestone when the US House and Senate, by unanimous consent passed H.R. 1037, and the President signed the National EMS Memorial Bill into law to establish a permanent memorial. By attending the game, you are not only acknowledging the important work of EMS, but also taking the Memorial Foundation one step closer to achieving their mission of commemorating the service, commitment and sacrifice of our nation’s EMS providers. For more information go to http://emsmemorial.com/.
When planning for the event itself, please arrive early for the pre-game ceremony, which will honor and recognize EMS providers.
We hope to see you at the game!
