New England Revolution players Saer Sene and Jerry Bengtson will be taking a break from the pitch on Aug. 15 and instead test out their ice cream scooping skills, volunteering at a charity event to benefit The One Fund Boston.
The event, which will take place at Ben & Jerry’s on Newbury Street in Boston, has been dubbed “Sene and Jerry’s,” with the two soccer stars working behind the counter from 4 to 6 p.m.
One hundred percent of all tips and 50 percent of the total sales from those two hours will be given to The One Fund, which was established following the Boston Marathon bombings to benefit those most affected by the tragic events of April 15.
The Revs girls, as well as the Revolution’s mascot Slide, will also be in attendance, handing out Revolution gear to fans and giving fans a sneak peak at Sene’s limited-edition bobblehead, which the Revs will be giving away at their Aug. 25 match against Philadelphia.
