The 2nd Annual Kickoff for Kids was a huge success. Thank you to all of the volunteers, players, sponsors and fans who made all of this possible. A special thank you to all of the refs, Freddy Ahern, and Sean Connor – who volunteered their time to help make the games run smoothly.
As you all know, this year the tournament was in Memory of young Colin McGrath. The funds we raised will be donated to local non-profits in South Boston for holiday presents. Each donation for toys will be made in Colin’s memory. A portion of our funds will also be given to the Colin Joy Project.
The Kickoff for Kids committee includes Allison Baker, Jacqueline Beggan, Christine and Barbara Kelly, Jaelyn Kenneally, Paula, Robert and Julia Casper, Joyce Welch, Caroline Baker and Cathy Carter. Also Betty Dillon and Kaileigh Beggan who were the photographers!
The funds we raised are going to make so many children happy this holiday season. You have no idea how much all of this means to me. I can’t thank everyone enough! Special thanks to the Donny Higgins Fund for being our biggest sponsor. See you all next year at the 3rd Annual Kickoff for Kids. Congrats to the Champs!
