Last night the PMC presented the check to the Jimmy Fund, at a big gala/dinner in Boston. The goal for this year was $17 Million, but the check was for $20 Million!

That's excellent! $3,000,000 over the goal!

Quoting from the email they sent out last night:

The record-setting sum is more than twice the amount ever contributed to charity by an athletic fundraising event anywhere in the United States and represents 97 cents of every dollar raised.

Jim and Steve with PMC check and Red Sox World Series trophy Here's a shot of Steve Davis and Jim Boyko, a.k.a. "the smiling bandits," trying to sneak out of the building with both the check *and* the Red Sox World Series trophy. (Remember, the Sox are the PMC Presenting Sponsors, so that's the real deal.) What were they thinking?!

Thanks again to all of my sponsors! My total for the year was $4,061. That's $1,536.50 better than last year!

Update: Steve tells me that Jim Boyko's tie is actually a bicycle innertube! (Dress code for the event was "creative black tie.")

More than the sum of my parts.
