New England Baptist Hospital was spotlighted during the April 5thBoston Celtics versus Cleveland Cavaliers game for their continued support of the organization and the team. After celebrating their 25th year in partnership with New England Baptist last year, the Celtics have designated a night dedicated to the team’s hospital every year moving forward.
The night featured a Rally Towel giveaway to all the fans in the building at the entrance turnstiles and a 50/50 raffle sponsored by the Baptist to benefit the United Way. In addition, there was a photo opportunity at halftime featuring team doctors, Dr. Brian McKeon and Dr. Fred Basilico with the Jr. Celtics Leadership Achievement Award winners. The Cavaliers game also marked the launch of the New England Baptist Hospital Playoff Sweepstakes where fans entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to an upcoming playoff home game.
