With the holiday season just around the corner, the annual WOON Radio Milk Fund Auction Committee, headed by on-air personality Romeo Berthiaume, has been busy planning this year’s upcoming auction. The Committee includes Darin Cooper, Michele Bocchini, State Representative Bob Phillips, his wife, Nancy, Allie Carcifero, and Milk Fund General Chair Lisa Carcifero. The group has been actively soliciting donations for the auction since September.
“This year, more than ever, the 92nd annual Milk Fund Appeal is important as more and more local families are in dire need of help due to the ongoing pandemic”, related Dave Richards, WOON station manager and long-time Board member. Richards serves as chief auctioneer during the radio auction which begins on Friday, November 24 and continues through Friday, December 22. The auction will run from 4-5 p.m.weekdays and from 6-9 a.m. on Saturdays during Berthiaume’s weekly “Saturday Show” program. The auction has become one of the major fundraisers for the Milk Fund over the past few years.
The Milk Fund is a 501C (3) charity and all donations are tax deductible. The Milk Fund is administered by the Community Care Alliance and provides free milk to low-income households in Greater Woonsocket throughout the entire year.
