A luncheon in support of the Boston Friends of the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) drew a large gathering to Fenway Park’s State Street Pavilion on Fri., Nov. 8. Sam Kennedy, president & CEO of the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Sports Management, offered remarks at the luncheon, along with Bill Powers, founder and CEO of Cambridge Mobile Telematics.
Later, Kennedy and Powers joined Boston Friends of the GPA Chair- man Aidan Browne and GPA CEO Paul Flynn for a panel discussion on leadership and adversity.
The luncheon was the latest success for the Boston-based friends group, which seeks to raise funds and awareness of the GPA’s mission, which is to support Ireland’s amateur athletes.
