The Women’s Guild of Holy Family parish is holding a fundraising Plant Sale/Strawberry Festival on Saturday, June 2, from 9am-2pm. The plants include all types: flowers, herbs, veggies, etc., either singly or in planters. There will also be a General Store selling preserves, pies, cookies & goodies (including some luscious-sounding Italian specialties), as well as strawberry shortcake. Specially made greeting cards with beautiful photos of Gloucester will also be on sale
The event will be held on the Rectory lawn at 60 Prospect Street in Gloucester (or in the Hall next door under St. Ann’s Church if it rains).
Some photos of the plants being prepared:
Thanks to a generous donation from Barbara Koen from The Dress Code shop downtown we are able to double the amount of t shirts that will be available for purchase. 100% of the money raised from the sale of these shirts will go to the family of Matteo Russo.
Here is the logo-
While away I was wracking my brain trying to think of some ways that would have a decent impact to help the family of Matteo Russo.
I just got in touch with Rob Newton, the manager of The Cape Ann Community Cinema and asked if we could donate a portion of what the gate is from the upcoming G-GAP presentation at Cape Ann Community Cinema to the fund that has been established for Matteo’s family.
He said sure, so Cape Ann Community Cinema will take the regular gate and 30% will go to the fund for the family.
The event is going to be January 28th at 7:00PM
There’s more though.
I just ordered a bunch of T shirts that Paul Frontiero has graciously agreed to silk screen for free and Beth Swan From Beth Swan Design is offering her winning GoodMorningGloucester Logo design and art skills to the project.
So if you haven’t been able to contribute to help the family but would like to, I should have the Tshirts at the GGAP next Wednesday night for $20. 100% of the money from the sale of the TShirts will go to the family on top of the money from the gate.
It’s not going to be a percentage of the money from the sale of the tshirt minus the cost, but every cent donated for the tshirt will go to help the family.
Hopefully some of the regular CAO and fans of GMG and will come on out in support.
Much thanks go out to Rob Newton, Paul Frontiero and Beth Swan for helping with the project.
