WEEI Helps Raise $3.3 Million
The Jimmy Fund was presented with a check for $3.3 million at Fenway Park last night. The check was delivered by the Boston Red Sox, Entercom's WEEI-FM, and NESN (New England Sports Network) as part of the 12th Annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon -- a 36-hour live broadcast coming from the famed baseball park. The $3.3 million will go towards adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The event has raised more than $34 million since its inception in 2002.
