Island Resident Participates

In UNICEF Fundraiser

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF recently presented the Children’s Champion Award to Red Sox star David Ortiz at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston.

Vineyard resident Nancy Thomas Caraboolad and her husband Geoffrey Caraboolad served on the event committee and were generous sponsors of this year’s event.

More than 300 guests attended the reception and award dinner, which featured a video highlighting UNICEF and Ortiz’s charitable work with the Dominican “Hearts” program. More than $440,000 was raised to benefit UNICEF’s programs for children in Latin America and the David Ortiz Children’s Fund.
