Attention Derek Jeter fans!
The former New York Yankees all-star shortstop is scheduled to be inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame this summer and baseball fans will have the chance to attend the event.
That’s because Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation announced it is auctioning two VIP tickets and accommodations to attend the 2021 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony as part of its virtual fundraiser, Give With Purpose.
Jeter was supposed to go into the Hall of Fame last summer, but the event was canceled because of the pandemic.
All bids through the Give With Purpose fundraiser and auction will support Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation and its programs that help youth to rise above negative influences, lead healthy lives, and achieve their greatest potential.
Jeter created Turn 2 during his rookie season with the Yankees in 1996, which has since awarded more than $30 million to create and support programs that motivate young people to turn away from drugs and alcohol and turn to healthy lifestyles.
Even if you don’t win the tickets, this auction is the perfect opportunity for folks to back this holiday season.
Here are three of the most popular items up for bid.
- Signed Kobe Bryant shoe
- Virtual call with Derek Jeter
- All-Stair Air Michael Jordan Cleat
A full list of items available to the public is here. The auction closes Dec 8.
