Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids - Crackin' It Up 2008
Just one year ago my friends invited me to Mohegan Sun for their charities first ever Crackin' It Up fund-raiser. A night of fun turned into a year long partnership with an impressive organization. Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids is a non-profit that supports a number of children's causes in the Boston area. Saturday was their second annual Crackin' It Up fund-raiser at Mohegan Sun.
Hits for Kids founders Enza & Kevin Youkilis.
Funny man Mike O'Malley emceed for the night.
Event chairs Cynthia Wachs, Kathy Volpe and Michael Muldowney.
My favorite auction item - Low number license plates!

These are always in abundance at Crackin' It Up!
I've seen this auctioneer before and I am always impressed with his talent. I really wish I could speak as fast as him!
Crackin' It Up is more of a comedy show than anything else.

This years entertainment included a Family Feud style game between the Francona and Youkilis families.
The Feud off was hosted by Nickelodeon hall of famer, Marc Summers.

Terry Francona.
You guessed it, they won!
How do you top a Red Sox Family Feud? ...By calling unsuspecting kids up from the audience!
Remember musical chairs? When the music stops and you're the one with the pie, it goes in your face!

This little guy didn't wait for the music to stop, he just went for it! The crowd was dying...
I can't get over her eyelids here - ha!
None of the kids chickened out either! Way to go!
Anti-aging face mask? No, just whipped cream...
Kevin ended up being the runner up.

Marc Summers then asked the boy if he wanted to throw it at Kevin, or if Kevin could throw it at him...
What a good sport!
Surprise guest artist none other than former Red Sox, Bronson Arroyo.
They rocked out!
Everyone was amazed at his array of enormous talent.
