Information about an upcoming event by Troy Brown—the quintessential Patriot:
Tickets are currently on sale for Troy Brown Celebrity Bingo being held at Gillette Stadium on October 29, 2007 beginning at 6:30pm. Join Troy Brown, Wes Welker, Kevin Faulk, Benjamin Watson, and more of his Patriots teammates and Boston athletes for a night of bingo, auctions, food and fun to benefit Celebrities for Charity Foundation and the Inner City Scholarship Fund. Celebrities for Charity Foundation was granted a one day bingo license allowing Troy Brown Celebrity Bingo to give away $10,000 in prize money.
“We are very excited to be having Bingo again this year,” says Brown. “We are appreciative to the Treasurer for giving us this great opportunity for the third time and I am really looking forward to raising money for two worthy causes. It is sure to be an evening to remember.”
Celebrities for Charity Foundation was set up to provide many local charities a way to have celebrities involved in their fundraising efforts. The foundation does this by providing celebrity visits to charitable events and by providing autographed memorabilia for charities to use as a fundraising tool. We ask different local celebrities to autograph the memorabilia and then distribute it to charities all over New England. Charities that are requesting donations must go though an application process and provide us with their mission and goals. This year Celebrities for Charity proudly reached the $1,000,000.00 donation mark and we look forward to growing this number.
The Inner City Scholarship Fund was started in 1991 and exists through the Catholic Schools Foundation, Inc. The Inner City Scholarship Fund grants inner-city students the financial support to attend primary or secondary parochial schools in the Archdiocese of Boston. Scholarship assistance is given out annually and awarded to students no matter his/her race, color, gender or creed and has helped over 61,000 students and given over $52 million in scholarship money.
Troy Brown will be joined by many of his New England Patriots teammates and many other local celebrities for 9 games of Bingo with the chance to win up to $10,000 in prize money. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.troybrownbingo.com or call (978) 749-6700
