Life is good® founders Bert and John Jacobs will present a check for $824,855 to representatives from The Red Sox Foundation and Project Joy at the Red Sox game tomorrow night, Sept. 14 at Fenway Park. The Red Sox will play the New York Yankees tomorrow night.
The donation represents funds raised at the 2007 Life is good® at Fenway Festival and nationally through the sale of specially designed Life is good® festival t-shirts. Bay State Parent magazine was a sponsor of the Life is good Fenway Festival on July 7.
More than 10,000 people joined Life is good, a Boston-based lifestyle and apparel company, and The Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on July 7 for a celebration of summer fund and good old-fashioned Americana. From colorful games, a spirited athletic competition, live music, and a contest to crown the World’s Greatest Backyard Athlete, people came together in a benefit for the Red Sox Foundation and Project Joy, a grassroots non-profit organization that utilizes the healing power of play to foster the social and emotional development of Boston’s poorest children.
