On April 30, Atlantic Plywood gathered with friends, family, and vendors to support our President, Paul Vella, and his band Old Dogs New Tricks at the Fourth Annual Band Against Cancer. Joining the band again this year on the drums was South Windsor’s Kevin Chouinard. A new venue and many new songs from the band made it a memorable night for all!
Each year, all profits from the event are donated to The Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund solely supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.
Thanks to our very generous Corporate Sponsors, donations, ticket sales, and raffle sales, we raised $75,000 for The Jimmy Fund. A special thank you to David Beaudry for his fundraising and MC-ing efforts. The band recently visited the Dana Farber Cancer Institute to present this year’s check, which brings our 4-year total to more than $200,000.
A huge thank you to this year’s sponsors:

Fred C. Church
