North End Against Drugs (NEAD) would like to thank all of our friends, neighbors, family members and supporters for attending our annual Bingo fundraising event.
Thanks to all who attended and those who provided gift certificates, donations, cookies etc, the event raised over $2,500 for events, programs, and activities for the youth and families of the North End.
“We had our largest crowd ever,” stated NEAD President John Romano. “The Nazzaro Center senior room was filled to capacity!”
Special thanks go out to State Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Senator Joseph Boncore and City Councilor Lydia Edwards for their sponsorships and donations! NEAD is extremely grateful to Nazzaro Center Director and NEAD board member Steven Siciliano for all his help and the use of the Center. Also, thanks to Debbie DeCristoforo, President of the North End Seniors for letting us use their Bingo equipment.
