As part of the Amica Game Ball program, Amica Insurance donated $41,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital in a check presentation during a recent Boston Celtics game.
Comcast SportsNet personality Kyle Draper hosted the event, as Robert A. DiMuccio, president, chairman and CEO of Amica Insurance, presented the check to Dick Argys, senior vice president and chief administrative officer of Boston Children’s Hospital. The donation brings Amica’s total gift to $218,000 during the last six years.
“Our goal is to help Boston Children’s Hospital provide the best possible care for kids, and the Amica Game Ball program has allowed us to do that for the last six years,” DiMuccio said. “We look forward to hearing more success stories about these brave children and their families.”
The program invites one patient from Boston Children’s Hospital to attend a Boston Celtics game each season. In February, 8-year-old Drystan McClain, a patient in the neurology/epilepsy department at Boston Children’s Hospital was Amica’s honored guest. McClain met Celtics legend Tommy Heinsohn, watched courtside as teams warmed up and enjoyed the game from floor seats at TD Garden. •
