BOSTON, June 24, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Gillette hosted Boston Celtics stars and World Champions Derrick White, Al Horford and Payton Pritchard at the Company’s World Shaving Headquarters to honor the team’s record–breaking 18th World Championship title with a 'championship shave’ celebration and $75,000 in charitable donations.

Gillette donated $25,000 on behalf of each player to a local nonprofit of their choice – Special Olympics Massachusetts, Edgerley Family South Boston Boys & Girls Club and Best Buddies. These organizations were recognized by the players and Gillette for the work they undertake daily to make a positive difference in the lives of Boston residents and beyond.
