BOSTON (WHDH) — Patriots coach Bill Belichick hosted a fundraiser for his foundation in Boston Thursday evening.
Belichick, joined by his girlfriend Linda Holliday, hosted the fourth annual Bill Belichick Foundation Hall of Fame Huddle. The event raises money to help student athletes and athletic programs in need.
“Football gave my dad a chance and it provided a great opportunity for him and that’s provided an opportunity for me and my children and my family. I want to be able to give back to the student athletes who work hard,” said Belichick.
Since the foundation’s founding, the Bill Belichick foundation has given nearly $1 million in grants and scholarships to student athletes and athletic programs.
Joining Belichick and Holliday at the fundraiser were ESPN personality Chris Berman and three-time Super Bowl champion Matt Light, who served as the auctioneer for the event.
