Art Delivers Check to Achilles International

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Williamstown resident and Williams College professor Hank Art this week presented a $2,940 check to Achilles International on behalf of Tunnel City Coffee, which raised the money during its Memorial Day weekend Boston cream pie fundraiser.

Art is helping Achilles build up its chapter in Boston in the wake of last month’s Boston Marathon bombing, which left numerous spectators injured. Many of those spectators have expressed an interest in running in next year's marathon.

Tunnel City owner Paul Lovegreen offered to donate all the proceeds from pies preordered for delivery last weekend to Achilles.

The Spring Street eatery sold and baked 84 pies for the cause.

Art brought the check — and pie — to New York City this week.

"Yes, they loved the Boston cream pie shown in the center of the table and couldn't wait until after lunch to devour it," Art said. "Much gratitude for the enormous generosity of the Tunnel City Coffee team."
