Tackle Sickle Cell Casino Night

Event Date:
Monday, October 02, 2023
Event Time:
7 – 10 pm
Event Location:
Gillette Stadium – 1 Patriots Pl, Foxborough, MA

Join sports media personalities and former NFL stars Devin and Jason McCourty for a night of food, drink, and gambling (with funny money) at Gillette Stadium! Together we’ll tackle sickle cell disease by raising support for BMC’s Center of Excellence in Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and community partner Next Step.

BMC has long been a leader in SCD treatment and research. Just a few highlights of our program:

  • Largest combined pediatric and adult SCD center in New England
  • Just Say Yes Infusion Center, which allows patients to bypass lengthy ED waits to receive blood infusions, pain medication, and specialty consults for sickle cell crises
  • Home to one of only two SCD fellowships in the US
  • Building a first-of-its-kind sickle cell biobank to catalog primary tissues from participating patients that will further inform SCD development and emerging therapies
