Just another $30,000 needed to complete playground!
Our January/February events we are a huge success. If you in missed any of these events here is a quick update….
The Klubhouse was packed with young and the young at heart supportng Ginn. Some of the older elementary school parents and children were out in force to see Despicable Me at the Next Door Theatre. Next up was the Blackhorse Tavern. Even though this event had to be postponed from its original date people were more than happy to come out of the cold, listen to some great music and share a beer with fellow Ginn Playground supporters. The fabulous raffle items didn’t hurt either with Rolling Rock Snowboard and a signed Bruins Jersey signed by Bruins Team captain donated by Anheuser Busch (ie. Dan Courtney), 4 tickets to a Celtics game donated by the Marianis, a fabulous NYC weekend getaway donated by the O’Donnells and various other aucition items that the winners were more than happy to walk away with. Last but not least was the incredible 1st year anniversary party the Parsons threw for Parsons Table with proceeds benefiting Ginn Playground. This was a great night with terrific food, drinks and company. Collectively, these events raised over $5000 for Ginn. A great big thank you to the Next Door Theatre, Megan and Chris Parsons, Tanja and Nick (Klubhouse) and the Kim and Jim Covino (the Blackhorse Tavern) for their support. A huge thank you also to Maura and Gene Fredey who threw a Poker night at their home and raised over $1500 for the play. We are so close to finishing the playground. If you still haven’t donated please consider adding your name to the hundreds of families who have helped rebuild this playground through their financial support.

Upcoming Events – Our last big fundraising event will be a 5K race on June 12th to honor the Stone-Mortimer family. All monies raised will be used to dedicate a portion of the playground in their honor. More details will follow in the coming months but this will be a terrific family event in which everyone can participate. Running races, games, music and food.
If you have any questions or want to volunteer for the race please email Mary Ellen Rourke-Falvey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
