The Grand Prix of Boston powered by LogMeIn recently announced a partnership with Global Partners’ Alltown convenience stores and ExxonMobil that help Veterans, Active Military and First Responders in the New England area attend the event.
Approximately 50,000 tickets will be given away for Freedom Friday events on Sept. 2, which features the first on-track activity for the inaugural Grand Prix of Boston, as well as family-friendly activities around the Grand Prix site.
"We are excited to partner with Alltown and ExxonMobil to honor those who protect and serve the public," said Mark Perrone, CEO and President of the Grand Prix of Boston powered by LogMeIn.
"Freedom Friday is a great event that is jam packed with activities for everyone. There will also be a special Veteran’s Job Fair, Family Fun Zone and Lifestyle Expo throughout the day."
Freedom Friday is an opportunity for participating Alltown convenience stores and Mobil branded fuel stations to give back to the community and the veterans, active military and first responders in the New England area.
Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Fund and the Veterans Homestead will be participants in Freedom Friday and will have an on-site presence during the event. Friday ticket distribution will begin in early summer 2016, and more details will be announced closer to that date.
"We are thrilled to be able to give back to those who put their lives on the line every day to protect our freedom and safety locally and around the world," said Jeff Popper, Chief Marketing Officer for Global Partners. "This is an opportunity for these deserving men and women to enjoy a fantastic day at the race track, and have fun with their families and friends watching the Verizon IndyCar Series and other events at the Grand Prix."
