The Children’s Hospital Corporate Cup Boston Challenge will be held on July 12th at Harvard University. Boston Children’s Hospital started this new fundraising initiative in 2016 called the Corporate Cup where major companies in New England enter with teams of twenty people to compete in various athletic activities throughout the day with the intent on raising money for the Children’s Hospital Trust. The money raised will be used to enrich programs for the children and support families of patients at Children’s Hospital, while also funding research and facilities to help find cures and better treatments.
This is Lamacchia Realty’s second year participating in the Corporate Cup. Last year the Lamacchia Team raised $34,500 and were the second largest fundraisers for the competition in 2017.
Why Lamacchia is Involved
All of the Lamacchia Realty participants care deeply about supporting this cause due to personal connections and experiences with Children’s Hospital. Anthony Lamacchia, owner of Lamacchia Realty, also has personal experience with the hospital.
In January 2000, Anthony Lamacchia’s baby sister Heather was born with a heart defect and was under the unwavering medical attention of Boston Children’s Hospital. Although she had the best of care, she passed away at six weeks of age. Anthony has been supporting Children’s Hospital ever since Heather’s passing, with the goal of raising $10,000 a year doing the Eversource Walk for Kids in 2016, the NSTAR’s Walk for Boston Children’s Hospital in 2014, 2013, 2012, and several years prior.
“After participating in the walk with my family and raising money for many years, I felt it was time to do more for Boston Children’s Hospital. Last year we decided to participate in the Corporate Cup Challenge and raised over $34,500 and won several events at the Challenge. Although we were not the overall winner, we will be back this year to claim the top prize. I am thrilled once again to have this great group of Lamacchia Realty agents and staff joining me to raise money for this wonderful cause!” -Anthony Lamacchia
The team will be posting training and event images using the company’s hashtag #LamacchiaCares.
