Kraematon Supports 2014 “Heart to Heart” Golf Tournament

The Kraematon Group was a proud supporter of the 2014 “Heart to Heart” Golf Tournament,benefitting Children’s Hospital Boston on August 11, 2014.  The event was held at the Walpole Country Club, with 144 golfers teeing off.  The event began with lunch, followed by tournament play, dinner, awards, and finally a silent auction.

Staff members of The Kraematon Group participated in the tournament, volunteer to help man the tees, and helped coordinate the event.

In 2007, Greg Clinton, President of Kraematon Investment Advisors, learned the news that his then 3-year old daughter Alexia would need a heart transplant after being diagnosed with Acute Dilated Cardiomyopathy.  Alexia began by receiving a Berlin Heart, a device not yet FDA approved.  This life-saving device served as a bridge until a proper transplant heart could be located.  Eventually, a donor match was located, and Alexia received her new heart.  Thanks in part to the great care given by the doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital Boston, Alexia is thriving!

Over the last 7-years, the scramble style tournament has raised approximately $230,000; $33,000 in 2014 alone!  Proceeds from the “Heart to Heart” Golf Tournament are donated to the Pediatric Transplant Division of Children’s Hospital Boston for research to further FDA approval of the Berlin Heart.

Thanks to all attendees and volunteers for making the 2014 “Heart to Heart” Golf Tournament a tremendous success once again!

Kraematon Celebrates 30 Years In Business

Opened in 1982 by President, Richard Sotell, Kraematon celebrated our 30th year with a party that required only an investment in wine and cheese!  The event took place at Newton’s Hotel Indigo in their trendy eatery, BOKX109

Clients and friends of Kraematon, along with their spouses, were invited to BOKX109 at Hotel Indigo in Newton for an evening of wine and appetizers.  Guests were asked to put their names in for a number of raffle prizes, and the evening was capped off with a celebratory slice of cake and a few words from Rich.

It was a beautiful evening we had the opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for our clients and friends.

Thanks to all who attended and cheers to another 30 years!

Kraematon Visits The Greater Boston Food Bank

What a great way to kick-off the holiday season!

The Monday before Thanksgiving, employees of the Kraematon Group visited the Greater Boston Food Bank to lend a hand.  We sorted food, packed boxes, and helped prepare items for shipment.  The Greater Boston Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England, distributing nearly 35 million pounds of food in the region last year alone.

Throughout the year and during the holidays especially, we at the Kraematon Group feel it is important to donate to charitable causes.  This was our second year helping out at the food bank and we cannot wait to do it again next year!
