Do It For Durrett Turns 5
Do It For Durrett turns 5 and will continue the tradition and allow the Foundation to surpass a huge milestone. The event is expected to push DIFD past the $1-million mark in money raised as it helps its 58th family since its inception.
The event marks the second year for a partnership between the DIFD Foundation and the Texas Rangers Foundation. Part of the proceeds from the Texas 2 Split 50/50 from three games this season goes to the DIFD Foundation.
Tickets include game ticket, dinner and an event T-shirt. The event will also include a few surprise special guests like those familiar with DIFD events are accustomed to. There will be live and silent auctions, with $50,000 going to Fort Worth residents Ron and Dee Gibson, who are raising grandsons Maddox (9) and Paxton (5) after their mother and father died tragically last September. The Gibsons will be the fourth recipients of a $50,000 check from DIFD. They will receive the check in a pre-game presentation on the field.
