The Worcester Bravehearts will host their fourth annual Fan Fest & Spree Day at Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field on Saturday, April 29th. To celebrate Opening Day of Little League baseball and softball in the City of Worcester, festivities will include a parade on Fitton Avenue, a free coach’s clinic for parents, and on-field ceremonies highlighted by former Boston Red Sox star Trot Nixon.
Nixon, whose Major League career spanned 1996-2008, played in parts of ten seasons with the Red Sox and was a member of the 2004 World Series Championship team. In his appearance at Fan Fest, he will address the Little League teams on the field, and will also sign autographs and pose for photos with fans.

May 18, 2017 will be the 5th annual sustainable food benefit. Tickets are available at tickets.holyapostlessoupkitchen.org
Farm to Tray is an annual celebration of food at the soup kitchen, challenging New York City chefs and high-profile culinary names from across the city to produce a Sustainable Menu with local ingredients for each dish generously provided by Whole Foods Market. Since its inception in 2013, Farm to Tray has raised over $1,000,000 in cash and in-kind donations and introduced 75 new partnerships to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.
Each year the benefit attracts over 300 guests, including longtime soup kitchen supporter Susan Sarandon and Susan Ungaro, President of the James Beard Foundation. The idea for the fundraiser is firmly rooted in the approach to food that shapes the soup kitchen’s menu each week – the use of fresh locally grown produce, a commitment to nutritional balance, and the importance of providing a variety of taste and texture.
Like the soup kitchen guests who eat here every day, guests at Farm to Tray will dine in the beautiful sanctuary of the landmark Holy Apostles Church, a space that New York Times journalist and soup kitchen supporter Anna Quindlen dubbed ‘the most majestic dining room in New York City.’ And like the food served here every day, the Sustainable Menu will offer food that is locally grown, in-season, and perhaps most importantly of all, delicious.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The 2017 parade will include fire departments, representing more than 50 apparatus from each community in Westchester County with over 200 participants alone, let alone the estimated hundreds of spectators typically attending along the parade route.
Agera Energy is a proud supporter of the Briarcliff Manor Fire Department and look forward to his wonderful event.
