Boston Community Collaborative Gets Kids on Court for Last Celtics Playoff Game

Boston Community Collaborative coordinated an amazing on court opportunity for kids at Thursday night’s Celtics playoff game 5 vs the Cleveland Cavaliers.  This was the final game of the Celtic’s Season.  20 lucky kids got to experience the Celtic’s “ANTHEM BUDDIES” experience before the game.   The “ANTHEM BUDDIES” experience is when the kids line up in front of the Celtics for the singing of the National Anthem.

Some of the notable highlights of the evening:  Some of the kids got to fist bump Shaq and Charles Barkley while waiting to get on court.  The kids got to see lots of behind the scenes activity in the media area.  While waiting to line up in front of the Celtics, they got to watch warmups from courtside.  They got to experience the players up close and personal and be very impressed by the size of the massive NBA players.





BCC is thrilled to be able to facilitate such a cool opportunity for these kids.
