Sam Kennedy and Boston Red Sox executives graciously hosted a fundraising reception on June 27 for The BASE that was attended by more than 50 prominent business leaders and philanthropists. Founded three years ago to shift the national mindset about what it takes for black and Latino youth in Boston and across the country to establish pathways to success, The BASE has a unique methodology that engages urban youth in baseball and academics in the context of a distinctive, high expectations culture. Governor Charlie Baker attended the reception with his wife Lauren. Kennedy, Governor Baker and Paul Marcus of Marcus Partners each shared personal stories about the impact The BASE is making, not only in the lives of the student athletes it serves, but how The BASE has changed their own minds about what’s possible for our urban youth. Also in attendance: Matt LeBretton, New Balance; Al Minahan, Preti Strategies; and BASE Board members John Cook, UBS; Paul Francisco, State Street; and Nimit Patel, Sony Corporation of America.
