WETHERSFIELD, CT - Last night’s World Series win for the Boston Red Sox gives Connecticut residents added advantage to show their support for Connecticut charities the team supports by purchasing one of the new Connecticut license plates supporting the Red Sox Foundation.
The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles and the Red Sox Foundation want to remind fans that Boston Red Sox license plates are available for Connecticut residents who want to support charitable causes in Connecticut. Proceeds from the license plate sales will help fund academic scholarships for Connecticut high school students.
The scholarships are awarded based on academic talent, financial need, and a commitment to community service. The license plate program was unveiled by the Red Sox and DMV at a press conference in Hartford in March. After receiving more than 400 applications, the license plates were put into production. Connecticut drivers interested in a Red Sox license plate can visit redsoxfoundation.org to complete the application form.
The total cost for the plates is $115 with $65 for the plate costs and $50 to the foundation.
