COUNTRY BANK AND THE WORCESTER RED SOX ANNOUNCE THE 2023 WOOSTARS
Posted on September 1, 2023
Country Bank recently recognized nine local WooStars and the non-profits they are affiliated with at Polar Park to include: Mari Gonzalez – El Buen Samaritano Food Program, Inc., Jenna Rahkonen – HomeFront Strong, Brian Feeley – Miracle League of Western Mass, Todd Stewart – Camp Putnam, Sharon MacDonald – Guild of St. Agnes of Worcester, Inc., Anna Rice – Dismas House, Gina & John Connolly – Lou Gehrig Little League and Joseph Kenadek – Jack Barry Little League. Each non-profit was presented with a $5,000 donation.
“Country Bank and the Worcester Red Sox Foundation are passionate about supporting the communities we serve. The “WooStars” is a partnership program between our two organizations. It is so meaningful to us as our community members nominate the WooStars and support the non-profits they serve. In its third year, we have awarded 27 WooStars with $135,000 in donations. These community leaders are genuinely making a difference, and we are honored to support them,” said Shelley Regin, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at Country Bank.
“Country Bank has been an ideal community partner,” said Dr. Charles A. Steinberg, President of the Worcester Red Sox and the WooSox Foundation. “Our WooStars partnership sheds the light on some wonderful organizations—and that’s in addition to our collaboration on our Police vs. Fire Baseball Classic and our MVT program that supports our Most Valuable Teachers. We thank our friends at Country Bank, and we salute our 2023 WooStars.”
