SAMBONI SUPPORTS TWO LOCAL CHARITIES IN BACK-TO-BACK APPEARANCES THIS WEEKEND
Providence, RI - Samboni the Mascot had a very busy Sunday. The Providence Bruins mascot made appearances at the American Heart Association Heart Walk in downtown Providence and the Always Adopt event at Balise Toyota of Warwick this Sunday, June 5.
Samboni began his morning by cheering on participants at the American Heart Association Heart Walk at Station Park. Participants took part in a 3.5 mile walk starting at 8:30am. Samboni was able to assist with cheering on the crowd and even took part in free health screenings, entertainment, giveaways and the kids’ zone. The event helped raise over $800,000.00 to support research, education, and prevention programs.
After finishing up the Heart Walk, Samboni made his way to Warwick to lend a hand at the Always Adopt Adoption Day at Balise Toyota of Warwick. For the third consecutive year, the Always Adopt Dog Adoption Day helped over 300 dogs find their forever homes—this year, a record-breaking 383 puppies and dogs were adopted.
