Fans attending Sunday invited to take photos with Red Sox & Cubs World Series trophies

The Red Sox Foundation and Cubs Charities will give fans attending the Sunday night 8:05 p.m. Red Sox-Cubs game the opportunity to take photos with the two "curse-breaking" trophies, the 2004 Red Sox World Series trophy, and the 2016 Cubs World Series trophy.

Both championship trophies will be on display in the Gate K/B concourse when Fenway Park gates open on Sunday, April 30, starting at 6:35 p.m. A recommended donation of $20 is asked of fans who take photos with the trophies to benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Cubs Charities.

Sunday's trophy opportunity will be the final in a series of collaborative events between the Red Sox and Cubs organizations to raise money for charity. Today, Friday, April 28, a luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Hotel Boston featuring a panel discussion on "Championship Teams" with Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, Red Sox Hall of Fame catcher Jason Varitek, former New York Yankees outfielder Bernie Williams, and former Red Sox and Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster.

Following the Red Sox-Cubs game on Saturday, players from both teams will attend a special joint fundraiser at the Paradise Rock Club featuring a variety of musical acts headlined by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.
Proceeds from the weekend's events will go towards funding scholarship programs for underserved youth in Boston and Chicago.
