It’s the “Best weekend of the year” and it got even better. Saturday afternoon the Travis Roy Foundation revealed the 2019 fundraising total.
Last year’s total was $617 thousand dollars. This year the Travis Roy Foundation broke the fundraising record, bringing in $685 thousand dollars total. The amount of money raised is just from teams fundraising alone, the final number will be released Sunday that includes concession sales, and a silent auction.
The Boston Beef team hit the $1 million mark of fundraising in the lifetime of the tournament.
Travis shared that he thinks the amount will reach over $700 thousand by the end of the Tournament.
“It’s a lot of pressure, a little anxiety to try to think that we could ever come close to putting up a number like that. I’m already nervous for next year. But, it’s humbling. I wish everybody out there that’s watching this right now could come out here and feel what goes on” said Roy.
Travis added “We’re gonna fund a lot of research and we’re gonna help out with adaptive grants. I’m excited to get back to the office and start spreading it tot make differences in peoples lives”
