The Season to Give – Radiothon 2019..we need YOU!

This Saturday is again the day the Merrimack Valley comes together for the benefit of the Greater Lowell Salvation Army. The Army helps those in need with food, heating assistance, holiday assistance, housing and just about anything else someone needs and they do so without prejudice! They don’t care about race, religion, sexual preference, ethnicity or wealth.

If you are one of my many great family members, a friend, a supporter of mine or the Salvation Army, a friend of the family, if you were one of my kinder-cuties, baseball players, St. Michael’s Cyoers, In-house or swim team members at the Voke, if you hung around the Tavern at the Bridge when I bartended or if we are related through marriage, if we grew up together, chaperoned or coached together, if you are one of my fellow LHS Class of 1980 members, you like or dislike my blog. If you are a parent I met over the last few years I need your help. If I have helped you advertise a fundraiser or promoted an event for you or for whatever reason you know me or my family in any way, We NEED YOU to call, bid or donate $5, $10, $25 or whatever you can because it’s these donations that are the foundation that we can build on with the money from the Auction items and larger donations.

Every year the Radiothon tries to find away different ways to assist the Salvation Army in raising funds to benefit those in need. Located in downtown Lowell on 150 Appleton St, the Army serves many needy families throughout the Greater Lowell area.

I am asking you, from my heart, with love, that you join me in any of the following ways:

You can do a little Christmas Shopping here:

You can stop by the Blue Shamrock on Market Street Owner Nick Petrakos and Kevin from the Shamrock will be opening for the Radiothon for some FREE Breakfast courtesy of local IBEW 2321 Telephone Workers and hosting these free performances

– Henri Marchand will do his magic tricks at 10AM

– Paul Belley and Chris Brunelle will play at 11AM

– The 2nd Floor Jam will play at noon

You can call in with a Donation of any size

You can grab all your change plus a $10 or $20 and donate to the Boot Drive being conducted by one of our great Firefighters.

Thank You and Merry Christmas
