Let’s rally around Paul, who needs our support to help battle his fight against cancer.

Paul Russo is from Gloucester, and frankly one of the nicest people you can meet. After graduating from Gloucester High School as a Captain of his hockey team, he took his bright mind and talent to Bryant University where he studied Accounting and received his Bachelors degree. While at Bryant he also shined on the schools Club Hockey team where he became Captain again. Paul then went on to earn his Masters in Accounting from UMass Lowell and accepted his current job at PwC in Boston.
This past Halloween morning, Paul suffered two seizures and was taken to Lahey Medical. Paul was diagnosed with Brain Cancer the following day. Just like many of us who are fighting to pay school loans, Paul could use support with now helping with his medical expenses for surgery and treatment.

4th Annual Mardi Gras Fundraiser to Support YMCA Teens Service Mission to New Orleans

4th Annual Mardi Gras Fundraiser
FAT Tuesday, February 12, 2013 11:30am- close
Teen Leaders from across the North Shore YMCA Service area will make their 4th trip to New Orleans, Louisiana to assist in rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina disaster.  Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005. and though many years have passed since Katrina destroyed most of New Orleans and its neighboring communities, there’s still work to be done to bring this area back to “normal”.
 
“The devastation is vast, even years later”, explains Rick Doucette, Executive Director of Teen and Camp Services at the Cape Ann YMCA.  “This is a tremendous opportunity for local teens to help make a profound and lasting difference in the lives of people who so desperately need a helping hand.”   Travel, lodging and meal expenses are estimated at $1,100 per youth.  Our hope is to fully fund each teen’s trip through a collaborative effort with local donors and businesses doing events over the next couple months.  The Latitude 43 event is in its 4th year, and, like the trip itself, and has become a high point of our year; kicking off our fundraising efforts in preparation for the trip.”
 
“The event has been a big success for the teens raising travel money in past years. And it’s become a very important part of our connection to the community”, said Zak Sears, General Manager of Latitude 43 and Minglewood Tavern.  “Even our music this year is locally based and totally donated. The guys from The Runaround are my friends and a few are my cousins.  So when I asked them to help out, they agreed without hesitation.  This is Gloucester”.
 
The teen participants are involved in the preparations as much as they are the actual mission.  Dressed in Mardi Gras costumes, handing out beads and selling raffle tickets the night of is only part of their commitment to the success of their trip. Teens are credited for all of the in-kind (raffle item) donations they secure for the event.
 
“We believe this should be a team effort, and that the kids learn as much from having to work for their trip as they do in actually going to New Orleans,” Doucette explains.  “And by soliciting their own raffle items, they are reaching out within their own circles to build awareness for the trip and for the importance of our work in Louisiana.  These teens really get so much throughout the process to the end of the journey; their feedback in our Trip Reflections always show amazing insight and gratitude.”

Event Details
Special supplemental "Cajun" Menu available throughout both Latitude 43 and Minglewood for both lunch and dinner.

Want to help MORE?

Charles Neville is a Grammy winner and Henri Smith is both an incredible entertainer and a New Orleans native. The theater is a piece of history and the night will be one to remember. Tickets available through http://www.gimmesound.com

As they say in New Orleans, "Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler". Let the good times roll……

This Week in Rockport: Shopping at NIGHT, Inn Tours & More!

Last week in Rockport we had the tree lighting and Santa’s arrival (events covered here on Good Morning Gloucester by intrepid reporter Rubber Duck — and its somewhat useful sidekick Paul Morrison). So what’s up in Rockport for THIS week?

The big news is Rockport’s annual Shopping Night. You read that right! Shopping after dark in Rockport! Dawn Noble of La Provence has organized over 50 stores (even more than the number listed on the poster) to stay open until 8 pm. Stores are offering holiday promotions for this event, so come for the shopping, stay for the fun. This one is a can’t-miss!

The next one is not strictly in Rockport, but have you been to the new Flatrocks Gallery just north of Pigeon Cove? Stop by this weekend — it’s a beautiful place.

Aran Patrican Friendship Hockey Skate fundraiser, Friday, June 1

JD Perry writes-

Hi Joe,

Just a quick note to let you know that I got together with a bunch of buddies, including Paul "Vuda" Genovese, Barry Clifford, Rob Bouchie, Jimmy Marr and Rusty Harnish to put together the first annual hockey fund-raising event in memory of Aran Patrican, who tragically passed away from a heart infection this past January, and to benefit his son Thomas Gomes Patrican.  Our goal, because this was put together so quickly, was to get this established in 2012 then build upon it in successive years.  We will also be following this up with a golf outing fundraiser in August.

The schedule for tonight, June 1 is:

6:00 — JP vs. Old Timers
7:00 — Diggers vs. Doc Twombly’s Monday Night Crew
8:00 — Tony Frontiero’s team vs. Doc Twombly’s Monday Night Crew II

Thank you for all your help in getting the good word out to your readers about the strength of our community.  This is simply one example in a long line of so many that you have featured on your blog.

With kind regards,

JD Perry

St. Ann’s School Auction Fundraiser From Fr Matthew Green

Good morning, Joey!
The St. Ann’s School auction fundraiser last night was a great event. I wasn’t able to stay for the whole thing, but I snapped some photos while I was there. Unfortunately, I didn’t get everyone’s names to label the photos, but I have to run to preside a funeral now anyway so wouldn’t have time to label them all anyway…
