STATEMENT FROM ADRIAN GONZALEZ REGARDING THE STATUS OF THE ADRIAN & BETSY GONZALEZ FOUNDATION:
"My recent trade to the Boston Red Sox from the San Diego Padres only enhances the mission and reach of the Adrian & Betsy Gonzalez Foundation. We
remain committed to helping the youth of San Diego County and Mexico and,now, are eager to work with the Red Sox Community Relations department on
projects throughout New England.
"My wife and I were born and raised in the San Diego region and plan to spend time here during the baseball offseason. Accordingly, philanthropic efforts and
donations will continue to be made in San Diego and Mexico. While we will look to expand our positive efforts to Boston and New England, we have every intention of continuing to give back to the region in which we were raised and where the foundation first began. Betsy and I are thrilled with the progress of the Foundation since its establishment, and we are eager to continue working
with the many great organizations and individuals that have helped impact youngsters positively."
