Celtics Harbor Cruise raises over $50,000

Earlier this week, the Celtics and Xfinity hosted a harbor cruise on the Spirit of Boston and raised over $50,000 to benefit the Boston Celtics [1] Shamrock Foundation.

Kendrick Perkins [2], Glen Davis [3], and Brian Scalabrine [4] joined over 100 Celtics fans on the two-hour Boston Celtics Harbor Cruise. C’s legends Cedric Maxwell [5], Dana Barros, and former ‘€œAmerican Idol’€ finalist Ayla Brown also attended.

‘€œIt’€™s always great to come out and support the Shamrock Foundation because it’€™s all about giving back to the kids,’€ Perkins said. ‘€œIt’€™s fun to have the opportunity to spend some time with the fans away from the court.’€

The Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation benefits children directly through programs that provide education and support, including partners Perkins School for the Blind, Children’€™s Hospital Boston, Horizons for Homeless Children, and the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC). More information on the Shamrock Foundation is available at www.celtics.com [6].
