BIDMC Employees Win ALCS Tickets
It's playoff season, the Red Sox are in the thick of it and three lucky BIDMC employees have each won a pair of tickets to watch the Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays in Games 3, 4 and 5 of the American League Championship Series at Fenway Park. The series kicks off tonight in TampaBay, returning to Boston on Monday for an afternoon game starting at 4:37 on Columbus Day.
Leslie Handler-Stern, BID-Needham, Cardiology, won tickets to Monday's game; Christine Douhan, BIDMC Health Information Management, won tickets to Tuesday's game; and Paula Fedele, Surgery West, won tickets for Thursday's game. All three winners also received BIDMC/Red Sox fleece jackets to help them stay warm on these crisp fall nights.
The ALCS raffle raised $6,750 for the Red Sox Nursing Scholarship Fund that supports nursing education at BIDMC.
The ALDS raffle raised $8,045 for Bowdoin Street Health Center. Proceeds from this week's raffle will fund an electronic exam table that will help Bowdoin Street staff more effectively move and care for pregnant, frail elderly and obese patients. In addition, with high heating costs and an uncertain economy guaranteed to challenge the most vulnerable members of our city, this raffle gives us a timely opportunity to shore up Bowdoin Street's Patient Assistance Fund that helps patients with heat, transportation, shelter, medications, food and more.
