For the second year, LPP has helped raise funds for the Jimmy Fund, an official charity of the Boston Red Sox. Since 1953, Boston Red Sox players and fans have supported the Jimmy Fund and in turn, the Jimmy Fund supports the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Together, the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber are helping to raise the chance of survival for patients around the world.
As enthusiastic Red Sox fans, LPP committed to helping its favorite baseball team support one if its charities. Last year, we raised $615 through a team of six. This year, we aimed to recruit a team of 10 and to exceed a goal of $650.
The results are in and we raised $1,080 with a team of 23!
Those who contributed toward the goal are wearing Red Sox gear in the office today to celebrate Fenway Opening Day. Later today, the entire office will kick off baseball season in style – with snacks and themed prizes. Already this morning, LPP-ers have been entering a raffle to win Red Sox gear and tickets.
And here’s a throwback to the 2016 fundraising team:
