We mentioned this event before. But it bears repeating.

ESPN's Buster Olney is hosting an event at Vermont Technical College on Nov. 12. Theo Epstein, Brian Cashman, and Neal Huntington are scheduled to attend.

There will be a cocktail reception, a roundtable discussion, music and a memorabilia auction. Tickets range from $20 to $250 and proceeds will benefit the Vermont Community Foundation’s Farm Disaster Relief Fund.

Here's a chance to talk some baseball with the best people in the game and help some fellow New Englanders at the same time.

While Boston was spared the brunt of Hurricane Irene in August, there was historic flooding in Vermont. Among those who suffered the most devastating losses were the state’s farmers. Buster, as you may know, grew up on a dairy farm and is organizing the event with his brother, Sam Lincoln.

Go here to purchase tickets for this worthwhile event. There also are some amazing packages and memorabilia being auctioned off.

-----------------

The Jamie Moyer Foundation is auctioning off an impressive package of tickets and perks. The winner will get:

•Ten suite tickets at Fenway Park for a Yankees game.

• Twelve suite tickets at Yankee Stadium for a Red Sox game.

• Four lower bowl premier tickets at Madison Square Garden for Knicks vs. Celtics

• Four premium seats at TD Bank North Garden for the Celtics vs. Knicks.

• Four tickets to the 2012 season Jets vs. Patriots at Gillette Stadium

Go to Charity Buzz to get details and bid. Bidding is now open and will remain open to the general public until noon on November 11. At the event that evening, a representative from charitybuzz.com will participate in the live auction on behalf of the online bidder with the highest big for a particular item.
