MCCA Executive Director James E. Rooney, said the grant to Little League is part of $120,000 in community grants and $10,000 in academic scholarships to 24 Boston nonprofits and four Massachusetts hospitality students at the Authority’s annual awards luncheon on May 29.
In addition to the Charlestown grant the MCCA plans to donate $10,000 from the Community Partnership Grants fund to One Fund Boston in support of the victims of the April 2013 Boston Marathon tragedy.
The awards were distributed as part of the MCCA’s Community Partnership and Hospitality Scholarship Fund, a two-part program established and sponsored by the MCCA and former State Senator Jack Hart. The program is funded by revenue generated from consumer shows held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. The goal of the program is for all of Boston’s neighborhoods to benefit from the work of the MCCA as well as to provide workforce development support for Massachusetts students entering the hospitality industry.
