Youk’s night to bring out Bobby V, Gavin DeGraw

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and performing artist Gavin DeGraw — he of “Not Over You” top-40 radio fame — are slated to spend Thursday night at the State Room in Boston in support of Kevin Youkilis.

The second annual Not Your Average Idol event supports Youk’s Kids, the charity Youkilis founded that supports and advocates for youth needs both in Massachusetts and in Ohio, where Youkilis is from, with a tremendous view of Boston’s harbor as the backdrop.

DeGraw headlines the musical performances, and the night is hosted hosted by Sarah Colonna and Josh Wolf of the TV show Chelsea Lately. There’s also a silent and live auction and food tastings from some of Boston’s top restaurants.

Tickets are $250 and $500 and can be purchased online at www.youkskids.org or by phone at (617) 964-9685 (YOUK). Doors open at 6 p.m., the program is scheduled to begin at 7.

Crazy- I had a dream about Gavin Degraw last night.
Love Youk, love his events. Thanks for sharing! If I were in the Boston metro, I’d be all over this.

I hope the event goes great! Way to go, Youk! GO SOX!

Kinda cool (to me, anyway) that we re-upped with the Greenville Drive. It’s the closest I get to seeing a “Red Sox” game in my area of the SE, and I get to see some of the prospects when they’re still really raw. Makes for fun baseball!
With both Prince and Pujols coming to the AL, the competition should be a lot of fun to watch. Bummer for V-Mart that he injured his ACL– I hope he recovers well. May be interesting to see how Detroit juggles their players when V-Mart returns, incl. in future years. Can we play ball, already?????
GO SOX!

Can Youk stay healthy this year? Will Youk hit away from Fenway? At Fenway, he’s lethal, but not much of an impact at the plate away from Fenway.

Lots and lots of questions as always regarding the Red Sox! It seems all of the contenders have gotten better while the Red Sox have stayed in neutral.
