Hess Home Run Campaign a Hit for Kids with Medical Needs
Date:10/2/2009

BOSTON, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hess Corporation will present two $50,000 checks -- one to the Jimmy Fund through the Red Sox Foundation and the other to Children's Hospital Boston's Trauma Program -- as part of a home run program kicked off on Boston Red Sox' home opening day. Aric Morrison, a Hess Retail regional director, will present the checks before the game on October 4.

Hess Corporation promised to donate $500 for every home run hit during a New England Sports Network (NESN) televised game during the 2009 season. To date 189 Boston Red Sox home runs have been televised by NESN. Hess pledged to alternate its donations between each organization on a game-by-game basis and rounded up its donation to a total of $100,000.

"We've been part of the community here for 10 years, and we've seen what a difference the Jimmy Fund and Children's Hospital Boston make in the lives of children with serious medical needs," said Rick Lawlor, Vice President, Retail Marketing, Hess Corporation. "Thanks to another great season by the Red Sox, we're delighted to be able to lend our support through our Home Run Campaign."

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 16 states from Massachusetts to Florida. Hess operates more than 170 locations in New England. For more information, please visit www.hessexpress.com.
