The time for Thad Baxter’s family in Woburn at the VFW on Friday night has raised a great deal of interest in the fundraiser.
“A lot of interest is being shown in the time,” said Maria Bussell, who is coordinating ticket sales.
“We are expecting about 125 people,” she said.
Nick Russo will be doing the cooking for the crowd.
The fundraiser is being held at the VFW Post 101, which is located at 194 Lexington Street.
The cost is $20 per person.
Everything raised will go to the Baxter Family.
In a related bit of news, the Everett City Council Monday night voted unanimously to petition the State House of Representatives and the Senate to approve an act providing certain retirement and medical benefits to the widow and the children of firefighter Baxter.
The Everett State rep and Senator Sal DiDomenico have already filed legislation to approve such an act. The legislation is expected to pass.
For tickets to the time, please contact Maria Bussell at 617- 394-2347.
