Here’s a giving story that keeps on giving. the BIG RanDom graciously donated their time and talent to our Beer & Wine Tasting Saturday, July 26. They are a smooth sounding bunch of musicians with a BIG heart.
They entertained the crowd with familiar rock all night long and provided a donation jar for brave souls who wished to unleash their inner-rocker by singing with the band.
During our live auction, the band turned the mic over to our auctioneer, Erin Herbert, who roused a whopping $2,000 from the interactive crowd with items that included a five-hour Silver Hook Fishing Charter Trip on Lake Ontario with Jerry Zalucki, a four pack of Red Sox tickets, and a day of fishing on the Quabbin hosted by Gary Nielan.
Just when we thought the fundraising was over, the BIG RanDom stopped the show with a surprise donation: a free performance at the event venue of the winner’s choice! The bidding started at $100 and quickly went up and up until it was SOLD to the man way in back for $500! Wow. What a great band and what a great crowd.
This story line has an even longer giving trail, but some would like to remain anonymous. But YOU know who you are. And we thank you from the bottom of our heart.
THANK YOU to the BIG RanDom: Rodney Norcross on rythym guitar and vocals, “Rocket” Ralph Gendron on lead guitar and vocals, Rob Kocis on bass guitar and vocals, and Dave LaPointe on drums and vocals.
