This morning, Saks Fifth Avenue on Boylston Street hosted the 12th annual From Fenway to the Runway event to benefit the Red Sox Foundation. Fashionistas gathered here at 11:30 a.m. to see some Red Sox wives strut their stuff to support the team charity’s Red Sox Scholar and inner youth baseball and softball programs. This year, the group honored the spouses, sisters, mothers and daughters of members of the United States military as their guests.
