BOSTON -- Hess Corp.'s retail regional director presented two $50,000 checks -- one to the Jimmy Fund through the Red Sox Foundation and the other to Children's Hospital Boston's Trauma Program -- as part of a home run program kicked off Oct 4, on Boston Red Sox' home opening day.
Hess Corp. promised to donate $500 for every home run hit during a New England Sports Network (NESN) televised game during the 2009 season. To date, 189 Boston Red Sox home runs have been televised by NESN. Hess pledged to alternate its donations between each organization on a game-by-game basis and rounded up its donation to a total of $100,000, the company reported.
"We've been part of the community here for 10 years, and we've seen what a difference the Jimmy Fund and Children's Hospital Boston make in the lives of children with serious medical needs," said Rick Lawlor, vice president, retail marketing for Hess Corp. "Thanks to another great season by the Red Sox, we're delighted to be able to lend our support through our Home Run Campaign."
