Please join us in this important event that was rescheduled due to bad weather last month-
On January 3, 2009 the Gloucester fishing boat Patriot sank taking the lives of Matteo Russo and John Orlando. Matteo Russo, 36, leaves behind a pregnant wife and four year old son. To help the family Joe Ciaramitaro of GoodMorningGloucester.com and Robert Newton of Cape Ann Community Cinema are holding a fund-raiser on Sunday, February 15, 1:30 pm, at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main St. A portion of the proceeds will be contributed to the family. Tickets are $7.00.
We will have GMG TShirts Available For Purchase and 100% of the proceeds will go to the family. Every dollar you spend toward a tshirt will be deposited into a bank account for the children of Matteo Russo after the event this coming Sunday. So please come, have a great time, see some incredible footage of Gloucester and help the family of this horrible tragedy.
I saw several of the presentations and I can’t begin to tell you how awesome it is going to be. For a measly $7 you will be completely entertained, and donate to a great cause.
The show is awesome led off with Rob Newton’s collection of vintage Gloucester postcards scanned in high resolution. We saw a sample of these at the first GGAP event and it was a whole lot of fun seeing old Gloucester on the big screen and guessing where some of the locations were.
Sharon Lowe -GMG contributor and Flapping Like A Haddock blogger presents her video, “Wall St. Autumn,” is a close-up look at the beauty of fall in East Gloucester.
After that we get to see the very fresh perspective slideshow from John Hintlian, a photographer, surfer, and web designer “Never The Same Place Twice: The Many Moods Of Cape Ann”. John’s presentation and photography style is unique and fresh and I think you’re going to love his work (passion). You can check out John’s blog Hye Tyde
Next up Oliver Horowitz will present his short buddy film, “Eddie & Paul,” which was shot entirely in Gloucester in December 2007.
To finish Steve Borichevsky, my favorite Gloucester Photography blogger with his ShootingMyUniverse will present his video, “Walking About Gloucester: Images From America’s Oldest Seaport,” showing pictures of Gloucester and its wildlife set to music including Van Morrison. I just love Steve’s photography.
