Dedham, MA (PRWEB) Beginning October 4, 2010, Papa Gino's will once again raise funds for the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. From Monday, October 4 through Sunday, October 24, guests will have the opportunity to donate $1 to support the "Football For You" youth clinics featuring former New England Patriots players.
The donations will help support "Football For You" clinics, hosted in areas where the opportunity to play football isn't always accessible. The clinics lead participants through the fundamentals of offensive and defensive techniques and skills. The day concludes with a guest speaker and family picnic. Participants are children ages 11-14 who range from experienced players to those just thinking about trying football for the first time.
"Papa Gino's was thrilled to help expand the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation's 'Football for You' clinics to Springfield and Rhode Island last year," said Rick Wolf, president and CEO of Papa Gino's, Inc. "The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and Alumni Club are committed to providing positive role models for children and supporting youth and family programs throughout New England."
"Funds raised through this special partnership will go toward supporting free 'Football For You' clinics throughout New England," said Josh Kraft, President of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. "Every $1 donation by a Papa Gino's guest will help give a child the opportunity to meet positive role models in the form of the New England Patriots Alumni Club and learn life skills through sports."
In appreciation of their donation, guests will receive a Papa Gino's coupon book worth $25.00 that also includes One Free Kid's Admission to The Hall at Patriot Place Presented by Raytheon in Foxborough. In addition, guests will receive a 2010 New England Patriots Schedule. Guests may redeem the Papa Gino's coupons at participating Papa Gino's restaurants.
