Campers from Sportsmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center at Fenway

Fenway Day, an event sponsored by Bank of America provided an opportunity for over 90 children, enrolled in Summer Fund camps, to attend a Red Sox game! In recognition of the Summer Fund’s longstanding partnership with Bank of America, three Summer Fund supported camps were selected to send campers to the game: Sportsmen’s Tennis and Enrichment Center, Wang YMCA of Chinatown, and Salesian Boys and Girls Club.

Prior to the game, the campers were treated to lunch and welcomed by Kerry Sullivan, President of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Ms. Sullivan helped get the children excited for the opening pitch by having the camps compete in a friendly competition to see which group had the loudest cheer.

The camps and staff enjoyed a wonderful day out at Fenway! The Red Sox game was not only a fun experience, but it was also a first-time visit to Fenway Park for many of the children. Highlights from the game included the consumption of lots and lots of cotton candy and big cheers all around for Big Papi!

The Summer Fund extends its gratitude to Bank of America for making this opportunity possible and for its continued commitment and partnership to the Summer Fund.
