In addition, the Vince Wilfork Foundation donated $1,000 as one of the evening's presenting sponsors.
Players are scheduled to return to work Tuesday morning. While many have been at Gillette Stadium on a daily basis since the team's last practice Thursday, others took advantage of the bye weekend by traveling home.
