Over 90 players, friends and family joined us last night for a great night of tennis! Along with corporate sponsors, we raised enough funds to purchase brand-new footwear for 780 disadvantaged and homeless children in the United States! It was an incredible night of generosity and fun and we are looking forward to our 3rd Annual Gotta Have Sole Tennis Tournament next year! Thank you to everyone who supported my cause. This was a great community effort and you made this a great success!
What an amazing day! Thank you so much to all of our Sole Supporters who helped package new footwear, socks and personalized cards for over 400 children in homeless shelters throughout the United States! Over 21 orders were completed and will be delivered and shipped over the next few days! We would never have been able to do this without you! Thanks for Making A Difference to so many children!
The Gotta Have Sole Foundation was recently recognized as one of the recipients of the Boston Red Sox’s 100 Acts of Kindness. 100 Acts of Kindness is a program that recognizes and supports the work of charitable organizations throughout New England during Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary season. On August 28, at 11:00 a.m., Red Sox staff members, in partnership with New Balance, generously donated 100 New Balance sneakers to us in a wonderful effort to give back to the community. We would like to thank the Boston Red Sox and New Balance for their generous donation!
About the 100 Acts of Kindness: As a way to highlight and support the important work done by the many charitable institutions throughout New England and beyond, the Red Sox are engaging in “100 Acts of Kindness” with various not-for-profit organizations during the 100th anniversary season of Fenway Park in 2012. These acts will take on a number of different forms, including donations, volunteer efforts, and hosting community events. Each act will be designed to highlight organizations and causes throughout New England. Red Sox ownership, players, alumni, and staff will participate. Additional acts will be announced throughout 2012, culminating with 100 by the end of this 100th Anniversary year.
