Granite Telecommunications has partnered with JAF since 2017 when Granite became part of JAF’s Champions Circle, the Foundation’s business giving society that recognizes extraordinary contributions from local organizations. Granite and its CEO, Rob Hale, have donated millions to cancer-related causes, including more than $280,000 to JAF.
Since 2019, Granite has donated a portion of the proceeds from their annual Saving by Shaving event to JAF’s Financial Assistance Program. The Saving by Shaving event – in which Joe Andruzzi has participated since 2019 – is an annual fundraiser where participants shave their heads, with proceeds going to cancer-related causes. The event has raised more than $28 million as of 2021. Granite is also a premier sponsor of JAF’s annual Gala at Gillette Stadium.
