DO-GOODERS: JEROD MAYO AND FAMILY GIVE BACK
NFL player Jerod Mayo, wife Chantel, and their kids Chya, and Jerod Jr. posed at the annual “Mayo Bowl” celebrity bowling fundraiser on Monday night. The event raises funds annually for Boston Medical Center & “Pitching in for Kids”:
In total there were more than 400 guests on hand for the event, with proceeds benefiting the Boston Medical Center — which last year unveiled the “Mayo Zone” in its pediatric waiting room — and Pitching in for Kids, which aims to improve the lives of children around New England. The guest list was star-studded, too, with Tom Brady, Tedy Bruschi, Danny Aiken, Dont’a Hightower, Brandon Spikes, Julian Edelman, Chandler Jones, Vince Wilfork, and Hall of Famer Andre Tippet among those participating in what has become one of the best-attended charity events on the club’s calendar every year. Usually near the start of the season, some players said last year that it has even become something of a bonding experience they look forward to.
No word yet on how much money was raised this time around, though the 2011 and 2012 undertakings reportedly raised close to $250,000 for the two charities. A good time well spent, it would seem. (Source)
