Jimmy Fund Thom’s-a-thon

The Red Sox are playing baseball. Hmm, in other news…

Join us this Thursday and Friday as we help support the annual WEEI-NESN radio-telethon for the Jimmy Fund by having a fundraiser of our own. We will spend two nights raising money by auctioning, raffling, and plain old begging. Feel free to give more than you can afford as all of the money is being sent to a worthwhile charity.

This year we will conduct the charity in honor of the late John Carroll who is memorialized in one of the artworks on our walls. Over one of the booths there is a framed poster of many of the major American newspapers the day after the Sox won the Series in 2004. Affixed to the bottom of the frame is a dedication to John T. Carroll Sr. who, born in 1919, passed away just a few weeks before the Sox finally ended their long draught. In his honor we will donate all proceeds of the two nights to the Jimmy Fund.

And, the highlight of the event will becarroll poster the sale of an exact copy of that framed poster, donated by John's son. Many people have asked where they could buy one, and now here's your opportunity. Also, look for autographed items and the usual Thom's give-away: beer. Thank you in advance for your support.

Also on Friday: He's back. The Dreamy One, Tom Brady is finally going to be on TV in New York as the Pats take on their former cross state rival, the Redskins (see, the Redskins began in Boston). Game time is 8 pm.

Looking Ahead

Lenny Clarke is coming to town. The sometime pride of Cambridge will be performing at Comix September 24-26. Let me know if you're interested in going.

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
Give a little bit
Ill give a little bit of my love to you
Theres so much that we need to share
So send a smile and show you care
