Big Winner.

"A guest reacts after winning four Boston Red Sox tickets during a charity auction Friday, March 30, 2012 at McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon in Boston, Massachusetts. The auction was held as a benefit for Massachusetts General Hospital's Boston Marathon team."

Alas, my first “gig” since being in Boston, and it was a fun one too!

This was a friend’s silent auction to raise money for cancer research in preparation for Massachusetts General Hospital’s 2012 Boston Marathon team. You can read her great marathon blog here for more details.

One of the most sought after auction prizes was, of course, a set of four tickets to a Boston Red Sox game against the Tampa Bay Rays. This was the winner’s reaction, which made for a fun photograph.

I also see it as some good starting momentum, as my season working with the Red Sox begins tomorrow!
