Amica’s donations to Boston Children’s Hospital reach $341,000

04/21/2017

LINCOLN, R.I. - As part of the Amica Game Ball program, Amica Insurance donated $41,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital during a check presentation prior to the Boston Celtics game on March 31 at TD Garden. The donation brings Amica’s total gift to $341,000 during the last nine years.

CSN New England personality Kyle Draper hosted the event, as Robert A. DiMuccio, chairman, president and CEO of Amica, presented the check to Dick Argys, senior vice president and CAO of Boston Children’s Hospital.

“We’re so proud to present this check to Boston Children’s Hospital,” DiMuccio said. “Through this partnership, we’ve met many brave children and their families, and we’re so happy to help make a difference in their lives.”

“Boston Children’s Hospital is extremely grateful for the dedicated support that Amica Insurance has extended to our patients and their families during the last nine years,” said Carola Cadley, vice president of corporate development and special events at Boston Children’s Hospital Trust. “Amica’s continued generosity speaks to the commitment of their employees, as well as their outstanding commitment to serving children in their community.”

The Amica Game Ball program invites one patient from Boston Children’s Hospital to attend a Celtics game each season. In February, Joseph Cotto, of Everett, Massachusetts, was Amica’s special guest. Cotto and his family met Celtics legend Tommy Heinsohn, watched courtside as the players warmed up and enjoyed the game from a suite and floor seats at TD Garden.

Cotto was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, CDKL5, which hinders brain development and affects fewer than 800 people worldwide. Once thought to never walk or talk, he is now making strides with both.
