And now for some info on my home team! The Boston Red Sox! (Check it out! 10 YEARS offering accommodations for those with peanut allergy!)

Thanks to Amy and Ann-Marie for helping keep me in the loop, so I can keep as many food allergy friends in the loop as possible!

I am copying and pasting the info below. Please note I am not the author of the below info. I believe the author may be Eli K of the Red Sox, but I am not certain.

2014 Boston Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Initiative





Overview:

For the tenth year, the Boston Red Sox will welcome Peanut-Allergy fans to Fenway Park once again in 2014.  In coordination with the New England Chapter of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the Red Sox make a concerted effort to help all fans to see Boston Red Sox Baseball at Fenway Park. Many of the changes to this season’s Peanut Allergy Friendly initiatives were in response to the 2013 Peanut Allergy Survey.

Peanut Allergy Friendly Section Ticketing
To purchase tickets to one of these three dates, please email peanutallergy@redsox.com.  In order to ensure that everyone who wants tickets in the Peanut Allergy Friendly section receives the opportunity to purchase them, we limit the purchaser to 8 tickets.

 Once your tickets have been purchased and as the game date approaches, I will send out waivers to be signed and the Fenway Park concessions allergen list.

 

Booth F:

Booth F will be available one game per homestand for families whose children have extremely severe allergies. Additional opportunities may arise throughout the season.  This booth is a smaller enclosed space and is in a more secluded part of the ballpark.

§  Located on Media Level of Fenway Park

§  Tickets are available once per homestand

§  Price: $55 per ticket (6 ticket limit)

§  Families will meet an Ambassador at 4 Yawkey Way prior to game time and be escorted up the Booth F

§  A Fenway Ambassador will be the contact for this family for the duration of the game

 

Booth F Ticketing 

Booth F tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please email peanutallergy@redsox.com so I can put you on our 2014 wait list.  Precedence will be given to those families who have not yet attended a 2014 Peanut Allergy Friendly game or had the opportunity to watch a game from Booth F this season.  Once an available date for Booth F is finalized, I will reach out to groups at the top of our wait list. 

Once your tickets have been purchased and as the game date approaches, I will send out waivers to be signed and the Fenway Park concessions allergen list.

 

Notes:

§  Waivers must be signed before attending a peanut allergy friendly game as we cannot guarantee a peanut free environment.

§  Please note that Fenway Park is NOT Peanut Free. We use the term Peanut Allergy Friendly as we know there are fans who attend Fenway Park that will eat peanuts in other areas of the park. 

§  After every game I will send out a survey in which I would like all participants to answer. This survey will help us gain knowledge on how to better improve your experience here at Fenway Park.

§  Please contact me throughout the season with updated emails and phone number changes. This is to ensure that everyone stays in the loop and has a fair chance to purchase tickets to our peanut allergy friendly games.
