2015 New England Bell Ringing Concert for Special Olympics Update.
At last evenings KofC Council meeting, Grand Knight Mark Barnard & Bill Toolin presented a check in the amount of $4,739.00 to five of our local Special Olympians. Pictured below are: Crystal Carruth, Russell Mosman, Laura Lemire, Courtney Jennerjohn and Chris Panarese. These athletes represent over 200 local Special Olympians from the Manchester and Bedford area. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to their local programs.
Over 400 individuals were in attendance at the Bell Ringing concert. It was a fantastic night of entertainment. Santa Claus (Olympian Jason Kimball) surprised us towards the end of the show to announce the winner of the 50/50 raffle. Thank You to all who were in attendance.
We received support from many St. Elizabeth Seton Parishioners in addition to strong support from our KofC Council. Thank You to Rev. Msgr. Quinn and Rev. Michael Zgonc for their help promoting this concert. This event would not have been nearly as successful without their support. Many other local organizations, listed below, also participated in this event. This was truly a team effort !
Again, Thank You !!
I hope all of you and your families have a wonderful Christmas Holiday.
