The 14th Annual Friend Raiser took place on May 9th at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston to celebrate Friends of the Children. ACE Ticket joined in on the fundraising action donating 8 box seat tickets to the September 5th Red Sox game as part of the Friends of Children Achiever Dream Day at Fenway Park. The tickets were auctioned off and helped to raise $22,500!!!! 90 people bid $250 each to support Achievers going to Fenway in style and to off-set the cost of the staff who accompany them to the game. In total an incredible $430,000 was raised and a record was set that evening!Friends of the Children is dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty through salaried, professional mentoring. They select the children facing the highest risks and match them with mentors, called friends, who make a long-term commitment to the children from kindergarten to high school who helps each child develop their own unique roadmap towards success. ACE Ticket is proud to support the incredible dedication of each mentor and resilience and achievement of each child at Friends of the Children Boston through our Charities of Choice in conjunction with our ACE Embrace program.
