The Children’s Hospital Corporate Cup will be held on Thursday, July 18th 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 third year participating in the Corporate Cup. Over the past two years, Team Lamacchia has raised over $60,000 for Children’s Hospital and has been the 2nd top fundraising teams for the past two (2) years. Help us in our mission to be the #1 Fundraising Team in 2019 and hit our fundraising goal of $100,000.00.
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 and his father have 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 decided three years ago that it was time to do more for Boston Children’s Hospital. We have raised over $60,000 in the past two years. Although we have come in 2nd place for top fundraiser, this year we are looking to hit the $100,000 mark and claim the prize of top fundraiser for 2019. 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
