2006 Joe’s Boys Halloween Fundraiser

Dear Friends and Family,

Oh What a Night! The 2006 Joe’s Boys Halloween Fundraiser was a big hit. The outpouring of love and support was obvious that night. We all had a wonderful time as it was time spent with loving friends and family. You made the party! The music was terrific – thanks, Terry! The food was delectable – thanks, Gregg! And, the costumes were outstanding….and as a reminder the Best Costume Awards went to:

Best Male - Dan Friel for his “Holy Cow”
Best Female - Linda Sherman for her “Beer Gut Guy” (p.s. she really is pregnant and due on Dec 5th – good luck Linda & Gary!)
Best Couple - Franco & Kristen Musto for their “Cooky Clowns”
Joe Hanbury Most Creative - Dave Kimball for his “Bruins Zambonie”

We hope you all enjoy the Bruins and Celtics games!!

Honorary mentions….Hulk Hogan, Wayne’s World - Wayne & Garth, The Parkinson Street Bird Watchers, Matt Ching’s Female Impersonation….the list goes on.

The evening was a huge success both in terms of the fun we had as well as the love and support we felt, but also because of your financial generosity. We are thrilled to say that the night brought in $8,000 all of these proceeds will go towards the college education of both Joseph & Gavin. We are truly amazed and overwhelmed by your unfaltering support and generosity!! Thank you for opening your hearts and your pockets for a wonderful cause. We also owe a huge thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who donated the wonderful array of raffles we had. Please know that what you all have done for this family will never be forgotten.

Another thank you is in need…Joe Fitzgerald, a cousin of our family was kind enough to capture the evening through video and pictures. You can view this wonderful tribute to all of you on the Joe’s Boys website at http://joesboys.pledgepage.org/

We’d love to get as many of the pictures together from the night as possible. So, if you could do us the honor of sending them directly to Kim Looby at kim.looby@verizon.net, we will share these great memories of the evening with all of you!

Lastly….we’ll be Back…..Save the Date – Friday, October 26, 2007 – the 2nd Annual Halloween Fundraiser for Joe’s Boys. So, now you have over 300 days to think about what you can be next year….

Thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough. You all are always in our thoughts and prayers. Have a wonderful Holiday Season!


The Hanbury Family
