Condit: Frank Carroll’s Mission to Help Feed the Hungry Continues

Thursday, March 19, 2015

 

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting or working with Frank Carroll, I guarantee it was memorable. There really aren’t that many people like him, and our community is blessed to have him. Not only has he been a long-term supporter of The Hanover Theatre, but he has also raised considerable amounts of money for charitable organizations and philanthropic causes across the country. One of the things I admire most is that Frank has never forgotten his Worcester roots, and he continues to give back to our community.

Over the last several years, Frank has made it a mission to raise money for the St. John’s Food for the Poor Program, where neighbors help neighbors so that no man, woman, or child should go hungry. In a recent conversation with Fr. Madden from St. John’s, we acknowledged that when Frank asks people to do something, they do it, and we all feel good about it! The work he has done to first build the food pantry, and now to expand upon it, is simply amazing. As a result, St. John’s Food for the Poor Program provides a hot breakfast to hundreds people who would otherwise go hungry in the city of Worcester.

His latest project, An Evening with The Priests, a concert to benefit St. John’s Food for the Poor Program, is an event everyone can feel fabulous about supporting. The three ordained and classically trained priests are a world-class act that will bring tears to your eyes with their hauntingly beautiful voices. Plus local performer, Emily Suuberg, will also have the opportunity to share the stage with this record-breaking group. When the concert kicks off next Friday, March 27 at The Hanover Theatre, there won’t be an empty seat or dry eye in the house.

Preview the show and join the crowd in support of St. John’s Food for the Poor Program. There are a limited number of seats remaining for this unforgettable evening, which brings me to one of the most frequently asked questions at The Hanover Theatre. People want to know if the seats in the balcony are okay. They are more than okay! To put it into perspective, if you stand on the stage and look up into the balcony, you can see the detail of the chair rail behind the last row in the upper balcony. In addition, I have personally watched concerts from the last row, and since the seating capacity is 2300, the experience is much more intimate because you are a lot closer than if you were in the last row of a stadium or arena! Tickets start at just $25 and are available at TheHanoverTheatre.org or by calling the box office at 877.571.SHOW(7469).
