Fenway Park at 100--An update


What happens when a needlepoint designer, designer/stitcher and needlepoint finisher collaborate for charity? Good things!

The radio-telethon held at Fenway Park this past August to support the Jimmy Fund raised more than $3.4 million for patient care and cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. The 100th birthday commemorative pillow designed by Cape resident Melinda McAra, finished by Marcia Brown, also from the Cape, and stitched by me brought in $410.99 for the cause! Pretty cool, don't you think?

That's great! I was wondering how much it sold for. It probably should have gone for a lot more though, given the talent and work that went into it!

*Applause* for you.

And of course, there's always next year for the Red Sox.
