Dropping the gloves for Cystic Fibrosis: BEF

Vincent "Vinny" Accardi is a long time volunteer and supporter of the Boomer Esiason Foundation and Team Boomer.  

The Boomer Esiason Foundation is a group of passionate, dedicated individuals who work every day to raise money, create awareness, and provide support to the cystic fibrosis community.

Throughout the last 17 years, Vinny has supported the foundation by dedicating his time and energy to three of the foundation's marquee events each year: Booming Celebration, Empire Challenge, and BEF Golf Outing. Vinny has also participated regularly in events for Team Boomer.  

Now, Vinny and his hockey teammates are "Dropping the Gloves for Cystic Fibrosis" by participating in the foundation's annual hockey tournament, The Guinness Cup, the last weekend of April at Northwell Health Ice Center at Eisenhower Park. 

Mission Statement: 

The Boomer Esiason Foundation is a dynamic partnership of leaders in the medical and business communities joining with a committed core of volunteers to heighten awareness, education, and quality of life for those affected by cystic fibrosis while providing financial support to research aimed at finding a cure.
