Jason Varitek will be there for fans to meet on Saturday in Easton, Mass. when he makes an appearance on behalf of the Jimmy Fund for the Makeovers Salon & Spa. Fans who purchase a $50 gift certificate can have a chance to meet Varitek and get an autograph. The event takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Part of the proceeds will go to the cancer-fighting Jimmy Fund.
Even though Varitek isn’t currently employed by the Red Sox — he is a free agent — he remains loyal to the club’s most identifiable charity.
“Owners Ed and Norah Blum are both good friends, and I have been getting my hair cut at their salon Makeovers all season, so when asked to make an appearance at their Holiday open house I was more than happy to attend,” Varitek said through a publicist. “The Red Sox have always come together with the Jimmy Fund and to be able to raise some money for them and it’s certainly my pleasure to help whenever I can.”
