Full house for Feast

Kiwanis Club fundraiser to tempt taste buds


A lifetime achievement award will be given to Bruce Arnold, a member of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame who has been called the Voice of the Merrimack Valley for his work on WCCM and is known for being a mentor to a number of other media personalities. Sports media members Dan Roche and Bill Burt of The Eagle Tribune and North of Boston Media Group will be on hand for the event.

The Fabulous Feast is one of three major fundraisers for Kiwanis, a service club that supports children’s organizations including the Y, Greater Lawrence Boys and Girls Club, a horseback riding therapy program at Ironstone Farm in Andover, Lawrence General Hospital Pediatrics Center, student citizenship awards, student of the month awards, a Lawrence reading program and the Greater Lawrence Education Collaborative. Last year’s Fabulous Feast raised more than $24,000 for these programs, according to the club.

Tickets are $50, with tables of 10 available for $400. To order tickets, visit
