Merry Rockmas Benefit BashSave December 19th on your calendar for the Merry Rockmas Benefit Bash!  My favorite local band, Mumblefish, and local legends, Eastwood Peak, are joining forces to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of North Middlesex Regional High School.

I’ll be there, and I’m going to donate some signed copies of my book, “Hats, Gloves, Hot Cocoa with Love,” as a prize for a drawing.

Here are the details:

When: Saturday, December 19
Time: 8:00 pm – midnight
Where: Alpine Grove, 19 S Depot Rd, Hollis, NH
Get Directions to the Alpine Grove
Tickets: $10 advance, $10 at the door (if available)
Buy tickets in advance via PayPal

Other sponsors include the Pepperell Music Center, who are donating a guitar signed by J. Geils, and Chuck Smith of Life Is Local, who is donating a website and six months of hosting.

I’m looking forward to rocking around the Christmas tree and decking the halls!  And, it’s all for a great cause.  Hope to see you there.
