They say if you want to get something done, ask a busy man to do it and with the New England Patriots busily preparing for their home playoff game against a still-to-be-determined Wild Card opponent, there are few as busy as second year linebacker Gary Guyton.
Whether against the Ravens, Broncos, Jets, Steelers or any of the many possible playoff opponents, Guyton is taking an evening away from his game preparation to be the guest of honor at the NE Patriots Playoff Party to benefit Pets in Need.
The event, which will be held at the Sky Box Restaurant in Tewksbury on Tuesday, January 5th at 6:00 PM is the brain-child of Jon Goode, the Vice President of Communications for the Lowell Spinners, Class A affiliates of the Boston Red Sox.
“We are hoping this will be a big event as it falls on the Tuesday before the Patriots ‘kick-off’ their Super Bowl run this year,” explained Goode, who keeps a schedule nearly as busy as Guyton’s through, not only his role with the Spinners, but also through his own Foundation, C2Mission, which benefits those with Cystic Fibrosis and Cerebral Palsy.
“We are very excited about having Gary Guyton join us to help this very worthwhile cause, Pets in Need, he added.” Adults and fans of all ages are welcome at the event and are encouraged to bring their cameras and their autograph books.
Each ticket includes an 8×10 picture of Gary Guyton, photo and autograph opportunity and a chance to participate in a Q & A with Guyton.
“I can’t wait to hear some of the questions,” added Goode. "The New England fans know their football."
“We will also be hosting a NE Patriots silent auction and a raffle. I am limiting tickets to ensure intimacy and time constraints.” Tickets are $20 each ($25 at the door) with $5 being donated to Pets in Need.
Pets In Need is a small adoption program run privately by volunteers who have joined together to save the unwanted and abandoned cats and dogs. The organization is strictly no-kill. Fans are encouraged to reserve tickets early to save money and to ensure admission to this exciting event. To find out more about Pet's in Need, please visit their site.
