Auburn Night at the WooSox
Throughout the 2022 season, the Worcester Red Sox (“WooSox”) will host different towns in Central and Western Massachusetts at Polar Park in Worcester for “Town Takeover” nights. Tickets purchased for each “Town Takeover” night will benefit a non-profit organization that benefits that town and/or broader community. At the end of the season, the town with the largest turnout will be rewarded with a trophy and special recognition.
The 2022 Worcester Red Sox 'Town Takeover' Competition has scheduled seventeen towns to each have their own “Town Takeover” night.
“Auburn Night” will be held Wednesday night, June 15th. The game starts at 6:45 PM. Various residents of Auburn will be featured in the pregame ceremonies and throughout the ballgame.
For every ticket purchased through the FEVO link at https://fevo.me/towntakeover or through the QR code in the attached flyer, $5 will be donated to the non-profit being honored on that day, which on Auburn Night will be the Officer Ronald J. Tarentino Charitable Fund. Each ticket purchased through the FEVO link or QR code ($5 additional cost over regular tickets) includes $2 of ballpark credit that can be used on concessions or merchandise. Tickets purchased though the FEVO link or QR code for Auburn Night are available for Simply Orthodontics Berm (Seating on LF Grass Berm) or the Third Base Field Box (Fixed 3B Field Box Seat).

The Ronald J. Tarentino Charitable Fund (https://tarentinocharitablefund.org/) was established in 2018 to honor Police Officer Ron Tarentino, Jr.’s memory. On May 22, 2016 Auburn Police Officer Tarentino was tragically killed in the line of duty while conducting a traffic stop in Auburn. At the time of his death, Officer Tarentino had been on the Auburn Police Department for two years; before coming to Auburn, he had been on the Town of Leicester Police Department for seven years.
The Officer Ronald Tarentino, Jr. Charitable Fund has a multi-purpose focus:
Acts of Kindness — The Fund seeks to help alleviate the physical and emotional burden of those who suffer from a serious illness, injury, or loss by providing assistance to their families in their time of need.
Acts of Generosity — The Fund seeks to offer scholarships to high school seniors for higher education who have demonstrated a commitment to their community, to their education, and to a future role in a field of service to others.
Service to the Community — The Fund seeks to physically support other first responder & military non- profit organizations that offer similar support of families.
