Joey Cerato of Hudson wins award of $10,000 for Camp Sunshine in Casco, ME
submitted by Sarah Leong Oliver, New England Patriots Volunteers are the backbone of non-profit organizations.
While their behind-the-scenes efforts often go unnoticed, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation’s Community MVP Awards place a spotlight on those who give their time to help others.
Sixteen honorees were recognized for their contributions in a ceremony at Gillette Stadium on June 9 and received grants for their respective nonprofit organizations. Ten New England organizations were presented with $2,500 in honor of their volunteers’ work with five more receiving grants of $10,000 and one grand prize of $25,000. “Of everything my parents are involved with, this program is one of the most special and important to them. Having the opportunity to recognize these compassionate and selfless
volunteers is a true honor,” said New England Patriots Charitable Foundation President Josh Kraft. “In this economic climate, we recognize the strain on nonprofits and were proud to increase this year’s grants to a total of $100,000. We thank them for their volunteerism and willingness to make our communities a better place.” Also on hand to congratulate the award winners

was Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, Pro Football and Patriots Hall of Famer and Patriots Executive Director or Community Affairs Andre Tippett, Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski and Patriots defensive lineman Ron Brace. Joey Cerato of Hudson was the one of five Runners-Up winners receiving a $10,000 grant for Camp Sunshine in Casco, ME. “I was quite honored to be nominated by Camp Sunshine and chosen by the New England Patriots for this award,” said Cerato. “Joey’s Plunge wouldn’t be the success that it is today without the love and support of my family and friends.” At age 11, Joey wanted to help those facing serious illnesses because of his family’s annual visits to Camp Sunshine. Because he was too young to be considered a volunteer at the time, he turned his dream of helping families unable to attend due to financial difficulties into reality when he created “Joey’s Plunge,” an event where community members raise funds by plunging into the cold ocean water during the winter months. Since 2006, he has worked to grow the plunge to numerous participants and multiple locations resulting in an endowment fund and raising more than $500,000. Now old enough to be a volunteer, he works with the special groups of Camp Sunshine families that have lost a child. Having accomplished so much it is easy to forget how young he is and one can only imagine the changes he will continue to make during his lifetime.
