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.
