A perfect way to ring in a second score of wedlock

OK, I’m ready to toss my hat into the ring … for the ring.

MoreSplashHits is reluctant to share this information with all of you as it could lessen the chances that I might win.

Or maybe after you hear my story, you’ll be inspired to buy some raffle tickets for me (Thank you, in advance).

The San Francisco Giants are holding a raffle this summer with the winner getting an authentic World Series ring exactly the ones the players received in the opening weekend at AT&T Park earlier this month. The winner’s ring will even include the winner’s name on it.

How cool is that?

But wait! There’s more.

The winner’s will be presented his (or her — but with wishful thinking, really just HIS) ring during a pre-game ceremony at AT&T Park on Aug. 27 prior to the Giants-Astros game. And that, of course, would include two tickets for “premium” seats to the game.

But wait! There’s more!

The winner also will receive two nights accommodations at a downtown San Francisco hotel, plus coach airfare to San Francisco (What?!? The Trophy flies first class, but this lucky fan flies coach? OK, whatever), plus $250 in vouchers for selected San Francisco restaurants.

But wait! There’s more!

The Giants also will play the winner’s Federal taxes for winning the World Series ring, almost $5,000.

Could it get any better?

Well, maybe if they threw in a Panda hat.

Now, it just so happens that MoreSplashHits already has the weekend of Aug. 27 off from work, as he’ll be celebrating his 20th wedding anniversary that weekend.

And what better way to celebrate 20 years of wedded bliss than an weekend in The City by the Bay? (But, sorry honey, you don’t get the ring. I already got you one of those.)

The raffle tickets cost $2 each, and there’s a five-ticket minimum. Proceeds will benefit the Giants Community Fund, which works to enrich the lives of underserved youth through the Junior Giants program and other initiatives.

Sounds like a win-win-win situation.

So, what do you say? Purchase your raffle tickets for me right here.
