BOSTON – As part of the Amica Game Ball Program, Amica Insurance donated $41,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital during a check presentation at a recent Boston Celtics game.

Comcast SportsNet 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. The donation brings Amica’s total gift to $259,000 during the last seven years.

“On behalf of everyone at Amica Insurance, I’m proud to present this check to Boston Children’s Hospital,” DiMuccio said. “Boston Children’s does such wonderful work for its patients and their families, and we are more than happy to lend our support.”

“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 seven years,” said Carola Cadley, vice president of corporate development 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 Boston Celtics game each season. In February, 16-year-old Connor Garland of Belgrade, Maine, was Amica’s special guest. Garland and his family met Celtics legend Tommy Heinsohn, watched courtside as the players warmed up and enjoyed the game from a suite at TD Garden.

Garland, who plays basketball and baseball at Messalonskee High School in Oakland, Maine, sustained multiple injuries after a hayride accident last October. Due to the severity of his injuries, he was transported from a hospital in Maine to Boston Children’s Hospital in the middle of the night. Garland and his family are grateful for the doctors and the care they received while at Boston Children’s Hospital.
