Profoot celebrates NYCFC partnership with viewing party

BY David Salazar

NEW YORK — Foot care company Profoot held a viewing party Tuesday night to celebrate its official partnership with the New York City Football Club for its inaugural season. The event, held at Sweetwater Social in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood, allowed soccer fans to watch the U.S. Men’s National Team beat Honduras for the 2015 Gold Cup alongside NYCFC team member Tommy McNamara. 
 
According to Profoot president Daniel Feldman, sponsoring one of New York’s newest sports teams was a natural choice for the Brooklyn-based company. 
 
“Profoot is passionate about offering products that promote an active lifestyle—from the feet, up — so supporting soccer, a sport where feet are everything, is a natural fit for us,” he said. “We’re proud to partner with New York City FC … and are looking forward to this truly home-grown relationship.”
 
“We are pleased to partner with Profoot and have the support of an authentic New York brand in our inaugural year,” NYCFC president Tom Glick said. “We are looking forward to this winning collaboration and an exciting season both on and off the field.”

BY DSN STAFF

 
 
NEW YORK – As Walgreens Boots Alliance prepares to announce third-quarter earnings on Thursday, TheStreet's Jim Cramer told TS viewers that Walgreens is a good play because it is a "stock that is working right now."
 
Cramer suggested that Walgreens' stock is "perceived as being a hiding place in light of the turmoil in China and the turmoil in Greece." On Tuesday, Walgreens Boots Alliance traded up $1.86 to $87.25. In late afternoon trading on Wednesday, the stock is down $1.75 to $85.50. 
 
Analysts are expecting Walgreens to report earnings of $0.88 per share on revenue of $29.6 billion. "I'm looking at Walgreens to see if they don't beat the number," Cramer said.

CVS Health, Boston Red Sox honor military veterans at Fenway Park

BY Antoinette Alexander

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health and the Boston Red Sox teamed up on July 3 to celebrate Independence Day early this year by providing military veterans of all abilities from across New England with an opportunity to hone their batting skills on the field at Fenway Park and participate in a day of activities.

Through the CVS Health Baseball Camp for Veterans, the veterans stepped up to the plate to receive tips from Boston Red Sox hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez. They were also provided exclusive access to the historic ballpark during a VIP tour, and received tickets to the evening’s game against the Houston Astros, courtesy of CVS Health, in the CVS/pharmacy Family seating section. The camp was hosted by CVS Health as an extension of the company’s commitment to our nation’s military heroes of all abilities.

The veterans who participated in the event were invited by CVS Health through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs New England Adaptive Sports Program. The program operates through the VA Boston Healthcare System.

“What better way to kick off Independence Day celebrations than by bringing this extraordinary group of veterans together here at Fenway Park,” stated Eileen Howard Boone, SVP of corporate social responsibility and philanthropy at CVS Health. “This is our fifth year partnering with the Boston Red Sox, and it’s an honor to be amongst these remarkable men and women once again.”

“We can’t thank CVS Health enough for making this experience possible for the past five years,” added Krista Geden, recreation therapist for the VA Boston Healthcare System “Our veterans always look forward to this experience, especially since many of them are lifelong Red Sox fans. Getting to practice hitting with the Boston Red Sox Hitting Staff, and spending time together at this historic ballpark is a dream come true for them.”

Over the years, CVS Health has provided charitable support to a range of veteran-focused initiatives. The company has supported military and veteran-focused organizations, including the National Guard, Fisher House, Operation Military Embrace and the USO. The company has also established a colleague resource group for veterans – called Valor – within CVS Health, and has hosted a series of football skills camps and golf clinics for veterans.
