Wycliffe Grousbeck, entrepreneur and co-owner of the Boston Celtics, was in town Monday, February 4, to meet with residents and offer insights into the Celtics from both a sports and a business perspective.
He was the guest of The Fund for Sandwich of the Cape Cod Foundation. The group hosted the event at the Sandwich Glass Museum as a fundraiser for its ongoing efforts to encourage community philanthropy and collaboration, raise charitable contributions, and offer grants to nonprofit organizations that serve the educational, cultural and human needs of residents.
Randall Lane, editor of Forbes Magazine and chief content officer of Forbes Media, led the discussion with Mr. Grousbeck, who also fielded questions from the audience of more than 80 people.
After the talk, Mr. Grousbeck posed for photographs with residents and the Celtics’ 2008 NBA championship trophy.
Impressed with the turnout and charitable work of The Fund for Sandwich, Mr. Grousbeck has pledged $20,000 in support of its work. This is in addition to the $4,000 raised at the event.
