Proceeds from the Jon Lester release of “CabernAce” benefit Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle where he was treated in 2006 for lymphoma. Proceeds from Clay Buchholz’ “ChardonClay” support the Jimmy Fund, an official charity of the Boston Red Sox, of which Clay is a spokesperson, in the fight against cancer at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
