THE ENTERTAINMENT: With rave reviews of the live performances at last year's fundraiser, rest assured the entertainment this year will equally impress! We are thrilled to announce that local favorite Cuppa Joe will be performing featuring: Josh Babcock, Max Pearl, Geoff Raywood, Chuck Walker, Steve Baker, Roger Ebacher, and John Hyde.

THE AUCTIONS: Our live auction is always a lively one, this year being lead by KISS 108's Rich DiMare! Many sought-after experiences are up for grabs like private use of our upper lobby and balcony for six of the seven "Yankee Homecoming Concert Nights" to hold a party for all your friends, family, or co-workers - as well as amazing getaways to destinations such as gorgeous Nantucket Island and Aruba! In addition, the silent auction will feature dozens of top-notch items and gift certificates donated by generous local businesses.
