Pedro Martinez Foundation Third Annual Gala

Join us for an amazing evening at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel

Hi Friends -

We would be honored if you joined us for our Third Annual Gala, on November 2, 2018 at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston.  Come and enjoy a wonderful night with amazing food, many professional athletes, and all for a cause that supports kids in need.

We will have a special VIP reception from 6pm - 7pm, where many of our friends who are professional sports players will join us and hopefully you will too. 

Then, from 7pm - 10pm, we will have our Gala event in the main ballroom, where we will have a fantastic dinner, great time to mingle, entertainment, and much more.  This is an event you don't want to miss!

Please know that 100% of the profits from the donations we raise will go straight to the kids we help in Latin America and the United States.   We are a non-profit organization so your tickets are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  We appreciate your support and thank you in advance for joining us this year!

Blessings to you!

-Pedro and Carolina Martinez


What is the attire for the event?
Please wear nice cocktail attire. Thank you!

What do I need to bring when I arrive to the Gala?
All you need to bring is your drivers license.  We suggest you also bring a credit card to participate in the
silent and live auctions, which will offer incredible items you won't want to miss out on.

Which Professional Players will attend this year?

We know Jason Varitek (Red Sox), Eduardo Rodriquez (Red Sox), Sandy Leon (Red Sox), Eduardo Nunez (Red Sox), Alex Cora (Red Sox Manager), Christian Vazquez (Red Sox), Drew Pomeranz (Red Sox), Corey Kluber (Indians), Luis Severino (Yankees), Carlos Martinez (Cardinals), Danny Salazar (Indians), Carlos Beltran (Yankees), Dellin Betances (Yankees), Marcel Ozuna (Cardinals) and Mayor Marty Walsh will be in attendance.  We are still confirming more players and will release the full list as we get it!

Will you have a Silent and Live Auction?

YES!  We have fantastic silent and live auction items including trips,
memorabilia, gift certificates and much more.

During the VIP Reception will I get to meet Pedro and other Professional Athletes?
Yes.  This will be a private reception where you will have the opportunity to mingle with Pedro and professional athletes.

If I don't get a VIP ticket, will I still get to meet Pedro and other Professional Athletes?
We are thankful that so many professional athletes joined us last year, and we expect even more this year.  So during your time at the Gala you will most likely have a few opportunities to speak with players.

Can I bring items for Pedro and other players to sign?
We ask you bring nothing for the players to sign.  We want them to have fun and enjoy themselves, and not signing autographs throughout the Gala.  You are welcome to take a photo with some of the players.  Just make sure you post on social media and use #PMFGala18

Are kids welcome?
Children 10 years of age or older are welcome to come, accompanied by a parent. 
For all kids tickets we have a special kids meal available.

Where do I park?
If you purchase a General Admission Main Ballroom or VIP Admission ticket, then you will receive complimentary valet parking.  If you purchase a General Admission Gallery ticket, you may Valet park for $35. There are also plenty of meters and public garages throughout the neighborhood. The closest to the Mandarin is the Prudential Center Garage.

We also highly encourage you to Uber or take a Taxi.  This way it's easy for you and it's safe for you to get home if you have consumed alcohol.

What is the General Admission Gallery ticket like?
All of our tickets are great experiences, and this year we are offering a lower priced ticket so that we can welcome more people to join us.  This experience will be fantastic with the same food and wine, beautiful ambiance, and Pedro and Carolina will come visit you during the evening to say hello.  This room is connected to the main ballroom, and has two very large doors that we will leave open throughout the evening.  Also, we will provide large screens for viewing in the ballroom.

If I have 4 our more people attending can I get a discount?
Yes.  Please contact us at, and we will discuss that with you.

Do you offer a vegetarian option?
Yes we have a vegetarian option available if you like.  Please just ask your server when you sit at your seat at the Gala

Who do I contact if I have more questions?
You can email us at, and we will get back to you promptly
