Raffle tickets for this event go on sale on Friday, October 24 through Thursday, November 20, 2003 and can be purchased by calling Melissa Hubert at 978-682-5553."Robbie Merrill is a wonderful supporter of the work we're doing at the Foundation," says Susan Leger Ferraro, Founder and Chief Curiosity Officer for the Leadership and Literacy Foundation. "We're so excited to reach out to the late teen and college crowd with our messages. Using GODSMACK and Robbie to open the door and speak to this market will enable us to further extend our messages of independence, knowledge and civic responsibility to an audience that is at a critical time in their lives. The choices they are making now in their careers, educations and personal lives will have lifelong impact." A three-time Grammy award nominee, GODSMACK landed number at No. 1 on the charts in April of this year with their newest CD release, "Faceless", and are currently on a national tour. They will be wrapping up their national tour the December 12 and heading to Europe to begin a tour with METALLICA. Raffle tickets will sell for $5 each and can also be obtained for free for those interested in donating one hour of their time reading to children at an approved Naeyc-accredited early education center. Four winners will be drawn on Friday, November 21 at 3 p.m. and will receive two (2) tickets to the sold-out concert at Boston's Orpheum Theater and lunch with Robbie Merrill. All proceeds from the event will be used for educational tools such as literacy kits, libraries, family resource rooms, literacy-enriched environments and training on literacy for childcare professionals, educators and corporations in the northern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire regions.
