The 2018 Dr. Murray Feingold Distinguished Service Award recipients are Beth and John Havlicek.  John Havlicek played 16 seasons with the Boston Celtics from 1962-1978, winning 8 NBA Championships and earning 13 All-Star selections. He was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history, was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1984 and his #17 hangs from the rafters at the TD Garden. He is the Celtics all-time leader in many statistical categories including games played and points scored. John and Beth have been dedicated supporters of The Genesis Foundation since its inception over 35 years ago, as close personal friends of the Feingold family and selfless fundraisers for the organization.  They hosted the John Havlicek Celebrity Fishing Tournament on Nantucket and then Martha’s Vineyard for 34 years running, and the Cape Cod Fall Classic as co-hosts for 11 years.  The Genesis Foundation is proud to honor John and Beth for their dedication, loyalty and impact towards the care for children in New England for over 35 years.
