Red Sox manager John Farrell, Notre Dame football coach (and Boston-area native) Brian Kelly, new Boston College football coach Steve Addazio and WNBA Connecticut Sun coach Anne Donovan joined up for the second annual Coffee with the Coaches breakfast and panel discussion Tuesday morning at Fenway Park’s State Street Pavilion that raised $95,000 for the Boston chapter of the Positive Coaching Alliance.
WEEI afternoon co-hosts Michael Holley and Mike Salk moderated the discussion.
Madison Park High School football coach Roosevelt Robinson received the PCA’s Double-Goal Coach Award for striving to win while also pursuing the important goal of teaching life lessons through sports.
“I was so proud to, once again, join this group of accomplished sports leaders for our second annual fundraiser,” PCA founder Jim Thompson said. “Their advice and opinions are priceless assets in the development of our young players and teams. PCA deeply values this devotion to educating and inspiring young athletes in Boston and beyond.”
