Monday May 9th at 7:00pm – Red Sox VS. Oakland Athletics.
The Peabody Centennial Committee received a donation of a once in a lifetime Red Sox experience that includes, 4 luxury seats with dinner at Fenway Park’s EMC Club, a limousine ride to and from the game and the opportunity for one lucky person to throw out the ceremonial 1st pitch before the game. The gift, donated by Business Copy Associates Vice President and General Manager, David McGeney, was offered to Peabody 100 to help support our efforts in our year-round celebrations for 2016-2017. Peabody’s Mayor Edward Bettencourt and City Councilor Tom Gould, who also serves as the Chairman of Peabody 100, immediately saw this as an opportunity to provide a magical day to a little girl and her family who are so deserving of this incredible experience. Ella O’Donnell, a 10 year old 4th grader from Peabody who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, recieved the special donated gift.
“We’re certain that we would’ve raised several thousands of dollars if we held a raffle for this prize,” said Tom Gould, “but we’re encouraging people to make a generous donation to the Peabody 100 Fund in support of our decision to send Ella to Fenway Park on May 9th. “They can do so by going to www.peabody100.com. Mayor Bettencourt added, “I can think of no better way to honor Peabody’s 100 year legacy of generosity and improving lives than to award this special prize to Ella and her family.”
