Jarvis and Hill are hoping to raise the same amount — or more — with next week’s concert.
“I’m sure we’ll donate a good chunk of money,” said Hill, whose company is also providing the sound and lighting for this year’s Yankee Homecoming waterfront concerts.
So far, The One Fund has raised nearly $40 million for marathon victims, and payments are scheduled to be made by the end of the month.
But both Hill and Jarvis stress that more help is needed, as medical expenses can add up very quickly.
“That’s not even enough,” Jarvis said of what’s been raised. “Every little penny helps.”
Next Thursday’s concert will also include a number of raffle prizes, including Patriots and Red Sox tickets; gift cards to local restaurants; and the “Honorary Captain Package,” donated by the New England Revolution soccer team, which includes VIP parking at Gillette Stadium, pre-game field access and the opportunity to flip the coin to start the game.
