Encore Boston Harbor raised $669,019 during three test nights before opening day, the company has revealed.
Those three test nights were great successes all around and encore is going to be dividing up the spoils of those test nights among a host of charities and public organizations, according to company officials.
The company plans to send the money to six local nonprofits: Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, Bread of Life, Everett Community Schools, Malden YMCA, Mystic River Watershed Association and the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts.
Each organization will get a check for $111,503.16, according to a news release.
By itself, the check going to the Everett Public Schools for $111, 503.16 is found money, funding that could likely never be raised following the school’s yearly budget creation.
