Fundraiser predicted game outcome

"Team Eagles" outraised "Time Patriot" but the $40,000 raised benefits Episcopal Relief & Development

February 9, 2018

While the governors of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania were promising a culinary delight for the state that won the Super Bowl, Episcopalians in the two regions (and beyond) were sponsoring a contest to raise money for Episcopal Relief & Development.

Although the contest ended before the game, the totals raised were an early prediction of the final winner.

the final tallies were: $18,502 raised by Team Patriots and $21,660 raised by Team Eagles, with Episcopal Relief & Development and its disaster relief, public health and economic development ministries the clear winner.

"Thank you to the host of generous donors to our Game Time Challenge benefiting Episcopal Relief & Development," said Bishop Alan M. Gates of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. "The outcome on the field was disappointing for Patriots fans, but the outcome for ER&D was incredible! Individually and together Episcopalians in New England and Pennsylvania harnessed their team pride to show compassion and help heal our broken world. Now, there's something to celebrate!"
