Nutter Proud to Support the 10th Annual Playworks Corporate Kickball TournamentPrint PDF
Nutter is pleased to support Playworks by participating in its annual Corporate Kickball Tournament on June 9. Employees from 20 companies from across Metro Boston will lace up and round the bases for the 10th annual Playworks Corporate Kickball Tournament with a goal of raising $30,000. During the charitable employee engagement event, participating teams of 12 to 15 players will compete in two round-robin games against other companies. Money raised goes back to Playworks New England to support the nonprofit’s efforts to bring safe and inclusive play to elementary schools across the region. Nutter has participated in the Corporate Kickball Tournament for three years, and serves as a sponsor of Playworks’ annual Get in the Game Breakfast and Rock Paper Scissors Tournament.
