Businesses pay to play at Fenway, build team spirit
On June 16th, a perfect summer day, physicians, client relations managers, and IT consultants became shortstops, left fielders, and catchers at the iconic annual ABCD fundraiser Field of Dreams. Thanks to the generosity of their companies and, of course, the Boston Red Sox, ABCD Field of Dreams raised an astounding $150,000 for ABCD Summerworks, a summer program dedicated to placing Boston’s underserved youth in paid jobs, starting them on a path toward their dream career.
A special thanks to Red Sox President/CEO Sam Kennedy for opening the park to us as well as Chair Lew Eisenberg, partner at Cosgrove, Eisenberg & Kiley, P.C, who has championed this summertime fundraiser since its inception 22 years ago, and our emcee, NESN anchor Adam Pellerin! And, of course, we’re grateful to sponsor teams from Mass General Brigham, Ropes & Gray LLP, Shields Health Care Group, DMB Financial, and Slalom, as well as the Boston All-Stars, drafted by NESN anchor Tom Caron.
