Cranston resident Ann Quinn was picked as one of the winters of a $529 contribution to a CollegeBoundFund account during a special event at McCoy Stadium.
Rhode Island CollegeBoundfund partnered with the Pawtucket Red Sox for CollegeBoundfund Savings Night at McCoy on Tuesday– a day highlighting 529 college savings plans as an effective, tax-advantaged way to save for college.
The family-friendly PawSox event was a celebration of RI’s state-sponsored 529 college-savings plan. The First Pitch was thrown by General Treasurer Gina Raimondo who reinforced a financial empowerment message in a CollegeBoundfund public service announcement that aired during the game.
Three winners were picked to receive a $529 contribution to a CollegeBoundfund account and 40 tickets to the game were donated to the Calcutt Middle School in neighboring Central Falls. Savings from CollegeBoundfund, RI’s tax-advantaged college savings plan, can be used at accredited colleges, universities and vocational and trade schools nationwide. Its goal is to help families meet the challenge of saving for college.
