Children's Hospital Boston

BOSTON, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hess Corporation today announced that Red Sox home runs this baseball season will help support children with medical needs through the Jimmy Fund and the Children's Hospital Boston's Trauma Program.

Hess Corporation will donate $500 for every home run hit during a New England Sports Network (NESN) televised game this season. NESN is scheduled to televise 149 Red Sox games in 2008. Hess will alternate its donations between each organization on a game-by-game basis. In 2007, the Red Sox hit 166 home runs with 153 coming during NESN televised games.

NESN will feature the home run program during its live coverage of Red Sox games, as well as provide updates throughout the season during the network's post-game shows.

"As marketing partners with the Red Sox, we are especially pleased to extend our relationship with the Red Sox organization and develop a program that can help support children with serious medical needs," said Rick Lawlor, Vice President, Retail Marketing, Hess Corporation. "It is part of our commitment to serving a community where we have developed a strong presence over the past 10 years."

Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has supported the fight against cancer in children and adults at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.

The Trauma Program at Children's Hospital Boston is a leading center in the treatment and care of injured children. It ranks among the top 10 hospitals nationwide for the volume of injured children treated. Children's is one of only a few hospitals in the United States to earn a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center verification from the American College of Surgeons, indicating that it provides the highest level of pediatric injury care. Today, some 50,000 patients come through the Children's Emergency Department each year. Approximately 11,000 of those cases are injury-related, from minor to severe.

Hess is one of the leading independent gasoline-convenience retailers on the East Coast with more than 1,360 stations and convenience stores in 14 states from Massachusetts to Florida. Hess operates about 160 locations in New England.
