O’Neill and Associates sends our condolences to the family and friends of Carol Troxell, President of the Faneuil Hall Marketplace Merchants Association who passed away today. Carol was not only a client, but also a friend who worked tirelessly for the Faneuil Hall Marketplace merchants. Carol was instrumental in putting Faneuil Hall Marketplace on the map as a “must do/must see” holiday destination as she helped to conceive “Blink”, the show that featured the region’s largest Christmas Tree (always 85 feet or taller!) with a synchronized light and sound show that attracted thousands of visitors from near and far.
Carol always wanted to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and she made a big impact through the nonprofit, Pitching in for Kids, that she founded with her business partner Sara Youngelson. Pitching in For Kids provides specifically earmarked grants designed to improve the lives of children across the New England region through sports-related fundraising events and programs.
Carol was committed to helping others in many ways, through her businesses, through her philanthropic work, and through her faith. She will be missed.
