Field of Dreams WiffleBall Tournament
The Field of Dreams WiffleBall Tournament took place on May 10th at the Boston Athletic Club. Teams gathered early for the youth tournament in the morning followed by the competitive adult tournament in the afternoon. Viewers gathered to watch the tournament as well as to enjoy the food, music, raffles, face painting, and a petting zoo. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this all volunteer event went to Joslin Diabetes Center. Thank you to Paul and Leigh Anne Fitzgerald, who created the event back in 2010 as a way to promote diabetes awareness and raise funds for research and clinical care.
For more information on how you can create your own community event just like the Fitzgerald Family, contact Martha Andrews, Development Officer, Community Programs, at (617) 309-2534 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 28th Annual Evening at POPS took place on Friday, May 9th at Symphony Hall in Boston raising over $77,000 for the High Hopes Fund. Over 200 guests gathered for a pre-concert reception as we honored the legacy of Frank and Jean Ring by renaming the honorary award at POPS to the Frank and Jean Ring Memorial Award in the Fight Against Diabetes. In addition, Laurie Bejoian was awarded her 50 year medal at the event. Following the reception, guests attended The Very Best of POPS in celebration of the Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart.
Thank you to everyone that attended this year’s event! We were thrilled to celebrate Frank, Jean, and Laurie as they have had a significant impact on the success of POPS over the years.
