There’s been a lot of negative coverage lately around Tom Brady but no matter what anyone thinks about Deflategate, he’s a stand up guy when it comes to Best Buddies. He’s been involved with this charity for years and just hosted another successful event in Hyannisport this past weekend. He’s generously given his time and money to support the organization, so he’s a touchdown as far as we’re concerned. We were lucky enough to talk to Tom after a previous race, check out Linda’s Off The Field.
Our dear friend Bill Brett shared these photos with us of a very special night. I have known Cathy and Rob Griffin for many years and I knew their son Corey from the time he was born. He had a big heart, embraced everyone and is missed every day. Through this foundation his memory and spirit lives on.
More than 900 guests attended 7’th annual Winter Ball held this year to support the Corey C. Griffin Charitable Foundation, named in honor of Corey, who died in an accident last summer. Corey’s family launched the foundation as a vehicle “to continue Corey’s great philanthropic works and loving spirit – with the mission to improve the quality of life for children in need through healthcare and education programs.”
Emily Rooney is an enthusiastic lover of vintage cars and boats – particularly the ones that go fast. It’s an area her nightly television program, “Greater Boston” on WGBH, doesn’t cover too often, so weekends you might find her at Larz Anderson Park’s “Cars and Coffee” or up at the family lake home in the Adirondacks. She also describes herself as a “shopper” – one who’s aware of what’s kinky, kooky, or just plain cool. She’s also current on the restaurant scene and makes the rounds on the charity circuit. You can catch Emily Rooney Monday-Friday at 7pm on Channel 2 or tune in for her infamous “Emily’s List” Fridays at 1:00 on 89.7 WGBH-FM.
