C's legends raise money for charity

Several Celtics legends gathered at Scampo, a restaurant at the Liberty Hotel in Boston, on Wednesday evening as part of a fundraising soiree to raise money for the team's Shamrock Foundation, which aids children's charities in the Boston area.

On hand representing the Celtics were former standout players Bob Cousy, Dave Cowens, Tommy Heinsohn, Tom "Satch" Sanders, JoJo White, Cedric Maxwell, and Dana Barros. Joining the former players were a handful of Celtics dancers, as well as the team's mascot, Lucky.

A large crowd flooded the outdoor patio, where guests mingled with the former players, who posed for pictures and signed numerous autographs. Select groups of VIP attendees later sat down for a formal dinner with the players, before Celtics public address announcer Eddie Palladino emceed a raffle.

Cowens, who attended the event with his wife, Debbie, reflected on the event, co-hosted by XFINITY, and being around so many other great Celtics.

"First of all, the hors d'oeuvres are [fantastic]," Cowens said lightheartedly. "Being here with my wife, Debbie, and seeing these different guys, it's been a lot of fun. It's a nice event. Of course, you've got the Shamrock Foundation and all of the good works that they do, so I'm glad that it's a full house. I'm glad that people are interested in contributing and supporting all the good work that the Celtics are involved with."
