On Monday, Erie County Legislator Joe Lorigo (C-West Seneca) followed through on his #AGoodGame campaign pledge and donated $370 to Brian Moorman’s P.U.N.T Foundation after committing $5 for every point scored in this past Sunday’s Super Bowl.
 
The #AGOODGAME movement was organized by fans looking for a worthy cause to support while supporting their team, or if indifferent to the teams playing, a way to be invested in the game by donating money to a local charity based on the amount of points scored.
 
Legislator Lorigo committed to donate $5.00 to Brian Moorman’s P.U.N.T. Foundation for every point scored in the Super Bowl, either by the Philadelphia Eagles or New England Patriots. The final score was 41-33 Philadelphia, resulting in a donation of $370.00.
 
“I was hoping for the highest scoring Super Bowl in history, which we didn’t get, but I’m thrilled we got to see the second highest scoring Super Bowl instead! It was a pleasure to be involved in the campaign, and to donate to a worthy local charity like the P.U.N.T. Foundation,” said Legislator Lorigo.
 
Brian Moorman’s P.U.N.T. Foundation. P.U.N.T. was founded in 2004 with the mission to make a difference in the lives of children battling life threatening illnesses. The foundation provides financial assistance and family based programs which deliver support and memorable experiences to enrich their lives.
 
“I’m glad so many points were scored to help maximize the pledge, and I am even happier the majority of those points were scored by the Eagles,” concluded Lorigo.
