MANCHESTER, NH – The 17th annual Bob Baines Blarney Breakfast is still on for March 15 at the Radisson Hotel. Tickets are $150 each, so you may just want to tune in to listen to all the action from the sidelines – The Morning Show with Peter White and the Moose will be broadcasting live, via WMNH 95.3 FM. (Stream the program from the WMNH website if you’re not driving around in your car).
You can count on the Morning Show co-hosts Peter White and Joel “Moose” Elber to snag some great interviews throughout the event, and dish on the crowd, including who’s wearing the most green, what cool items are up for auction, and how much delicious food the Moose was able to score, with his usual charm.
The annual event, hosted by former Manchester Mayor Bob Baines, has become a St. Patrick’s Day tradition in Manchester, and in the process, has raised more than $900,000 to date for Special Olympics New Hampshire, the March of Dimes, The American Red Cross and the Shirley Brulotte Fund for the International Institute of New Hampshire, through ticket sales and raffles of great auction items.
Entertainment by Finbar Wright, one of the famous Irish tenors, and motivational speaker Deo Mwano, of Manchester, a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who has turned his early life of hardship around by sharing with others his experiences as he created a new pathway forward for himself and his family.
Also on the program to address the crowd: Gov. Chris Sununu, Mayor Ted Gatsas, and Stan Spirou, coach of the SNHU’s Penmen basketball team.
