BOSTON COLLEGE RELAY FOR LIFE: We began our Spring into Action initiative by donating Red Sox tickets to Boston College for their Relay for Life campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society on March 29th. 64 teams at Boston College participated and together over $97,000.00 was raised!
TEAM IMPACT: ACE Ticket sent families from Team IMPACT to see the Red Sox on April 23rd & 24th. Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses across the country with college athletic teams, forming lifelong bonds and life-changing outcomes. The families were so excited and had a great time! The family in the photo attached was able to go to their first game! Also, ACE donated 8 box seats to see the Red Sox in September to Team IMPACT’s 7th Annual Game Day Gala which took place on May 1st at the Sea Port World Trade Center. Team IMPACT has positively impacted more than 1,700 kids, 600 colleges and universities and 50,000 student athletes.
CHARLESTOWN COALITION: MGH CENTER FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH IMPROVEMENT: We were overjoyed to put lots of smiles on the faces of the Charlestown community through donating tickets to The Charlestown Coalition. The coalition oversees a number of programs and initiatives focused on enhancing youth, supporting individuals through drug and alcohol recovery, and promoting healthy families by addressing the mental health and basic health needs of everyone in our community.
IBA BOSTON- IQUILINOS BORICUAS EN ACCION: Next up at bat, 20 tickets to see Red Sox action on 4/24 were gifted to IBA Boston’s Youth Development Program and to the young adults in their Opportunity Youth cohort and their families.

JEWISH BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS: Talk about a perfect match! We were so thankful to receive a note from one of the Big Brother and Little Brother pairs who said they had a “BLAST and a ton of fun” at the Red Sox game. It is so important for JBBBS matches to be able to spend fun quality time together and what better way to do that then to take in a Red Sox game.
WEST END HOUSE: 75 tickets to see the Red Sox means 75 smiling faces! West End House is an innovative and vibrant youth development agency that provides outcomes-driven programs to more than 1,700 youth residing in the most underserved communities in the city of Boston. Their high-impact programs ensure that our young people are succeeding academically, exploring and mastering the arts, developing career readiness skills, and adopting healthy lifestyles, and it shows! Just look at these smiles!
