With a little over 2 weeks to go, the Friendship Party for George Connolly to be held Friday evening, February 17, at 7 p.m. until … in Florian Hall is shaping up to be a night George, his family, friends and neighbors will always remember.
The party promises to be full of laughter, with great entertainment and some amazing raffles that are pouring in to the GC Friendship Committee every day! There is something for everyone to bid on including a spectacular trip for two to Las Vegas, with 3 nights at the MGM Grand and 2 show tickets; a pair of tickets to see the “Piano Man” himself – Billy Joel at Fenway Park; original artwork by talented, local artists Norman Crump, Mo Hanley, Bobby Farrell & Tommy Cherry; a “Red Neck” Basket with 2 Kenny Chesney tickets, topped off with cowboy hats & flannel shirts; for Red Sox Nation there is an autographed Dustin Pedroia bat; a “Homerun” package with 4 Red Sox tickets on Marathon Day; for the hockey fan – 4 Boston Bruins tickets with dinner in the North End; And, an awesome hockey stick and Bauer skates; you can knock yourself out with a 2 months all-inclusive Peter Welch Gym membership and so much more.
As you may know, George has been diagnosed with throat cancer. He has completed his intensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. And there were further complications. He had to have his tonsils removed, and since he is a diabetic, George has had a feeding tube inserted into his stomach to control his diet. But there’s always friendship. We mentioned that Friday, February 17, will be quite an evening with great entertainment. Both Dru Errico and cover band Thomas Park will be there along with countless others who want to give back to a true friend who has given us all the timeless gifts of laughter and friendship. So mark your calendar for Friday evening, February 17. See you there.
