Good News New England | January 17, 2021

Good news, New England! For those of you that have been following along, you’ve probably noticed a slight change in the positive newscast you’ve been seeing every week. After spending nearly a year perfecting the GNE brand, testing and re-testing segments, and working around COVID restrictions that have postponed most major charity events, I’m truly thrilled to share this pilot episode of Good News New England. (If you’re looking for previous episodes of Evenings With Emmalyn, don’t worry: those are still on here, too, and won’t be going anywhere! They are all a part of the journey that has lead us here today.)

Now, let’s get on with the (good) news! We’re starting in Boston today where Sudbury native and Marvel action star Chris Evans made a generous donation that made him a hero for many families in real life. After scoring $80,000 in prize winnings for coming in third place in the Marvel Avengers Fantasy Football league sponsored by FanDuel, the funds were sent directly to Christopher’s Haven in Boston. Christopher’s Haven is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting children battling cancer and their families by providing a warm place for them to stay as they travel to Boston for treatment.
