“We’re overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the local sports and business communities over the last three years and especially thrilled to have Foxwoods Resort Casino and MGM Grand at Foxwoods as our presenting sponsor and the return of Absolut as our title sponsor for the concert,” said Beckett. “As a result of our collective efforts, we are fortunate enough to raise funds that make a positive impact on the lives of kids served by Children’s Hospital Boston. I’m thrilled to be back for another Beckett Bowl to rally around these deserving children and make an even greater impact in the community.”
