Worcester, MA (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
Inspired by the holiday spirit of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, in partnership with 96.1 WSRS, the Worcester County Food Bank and Price Chopper, has committed to donate ticket proceeds of the Sunday, December 23 performance of A CHRISTMAS CAROL to the 20th Annual Feed Worcester County Food Drive. Consumers are asked to show their Price Chopper Advantage Card at the box office or mention it on the phone when purchasing tickets to the Sunday, December 23 performance of A CHRISTMAS CAROL at 1pm, and 50% of each ticket price will benefit the Worcester County Food Bank. The fifth annual production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is generously sponsored by Bank of America.
Tom Holt, WSRS program director and longtime supporter of the Food Drive, commented on the stations involvement with both organizations stating, WSRS is proud to be a part of two great Worcester traditions. First, A CHRISTMAS CAROL at The Hanover Theatre, and second, The Worcester County Food Bank. Both are holiday favorites relied upon by the great people of Worcester County!
Hunger affects an individual, then a family, and ultimately a community, said Jean McMurray, Executive Director of the Worcester County Food Bank. The Hanover Theatre is a member of the community that cares about ending hunger. Our partnership with the theatre on a performance of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is a creative way to support the arts while also providing help and hope to our neighbors throughout Worcester County.
