More than 1,200 guests attended a fundraiser at the House of Blues for Eric Donovan of Scituate. Donovan, 15, was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare cancer in the groin area.

You Can Do Good, Easily – Meet Me August 6 at Boston’s House of Blues for Eric Donovan

I made this video for Eric Donovan, hoping it will help inspire you to join us on August 6th at Boston’s House of Blues, to help raise funds for him to pursue the best in rehabilitation.

At 15 Eric was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma. He beat the 30% chance for survival that they gave him. After battling the disease throughout his teen years, he was cleared of the disease…and just weeks later, he was critically injured in a diving accident, leaving him a quadriplegic.

Eric’s strength and determination have touched so many. I didn’t know Eric before this event – I just happened to be at the same beach the day of his accident and was moved to help him. I hope you will be, too.

Tickets are $50.00 – celeb appearances, auctions, raffles and more will make it an unforgettable night for Eric – and you. You’ve gone to parties or TweetUps for less, right? Please sign up & meet me in Boston – have fun & do good, it’s easy.

Winterizing the Boat – Summer’s Definitely Gone

My Whrrl story in pictures – we took our boat out one last time to move it to a new harbor for the winter. Very sad – the season was so short with all the rain we had; we barely got to use the ole’ girl this summer. Here’s hoping for a fast New England Winter and a very warm spring…
