Big League Pillows Partners with Team IMPACT at 7th Annual Game Day Gala
Big League Pillows was proud to partner with Team IMPACT at their 7th Annual Game Day Gala by donating personalized jersey pillows for 20 special children honored during the evening. Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with local college athletic teams.
Each child received a Big League Pillow in the jersey shape of their favorite sport, with their last name on the back and Team IMPACT on the front. #19 was featured on each jersey to mark the year of the gala. The premier event raised a total of $2.6MM.
“Team IMPACT was honored to partner with Big League Pillow this year. The children loved their pillows and will treasure them as a lasting memento of a wonderful night,” said Seth Rosenzweig, Chief Executive Officer of Team IMPACT.
“It was a privilege to be a part of such a special moment for the children of Team IMPACT,” said Adam Alson, founder of Big League Pillows. “The whole event was moving and to see the strength of these children and their families was inspiring.”
“The work Team IMPACT is doing is life-changing for not only the children, but the athletes and coaches as well,” said Andrea Serie, Account Director at Big League Pillows. “The grace displayed by such young people in the face of such challenges puts everything in perspective.”
The Game Day Gala was hosted at the Seaport Convention Center in Boston on May 1st. Over 1,300 attendees were moved by speeches from children, athletes and coaches currently participating in the program. A live auction, silent auction and raffle kept guests entertained during a spectacular program.
