Established in 1962, Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. (ABCD)
is Boston’s official anti-poverty agency and services over 85,000 low-income
Greater Boston residents. Their annual toy drive has been in existence for over 30 years and during that time they have been able to donate toys to thousands of underprivileged children in the Boston area.
The toy drive is an important yearly effort that allows us to bring a little
extra cheer to many families who otherwise may not have had the financial
ability to provide for their families at this very important time of the year.
The launch of our toy drive will be at the upcoming LFC Boston Ugly Sweater Holiday Party on Dec. 6 at the Phoenix Landing, 5-9 p.m. You will learn more details about the Toy Drive and select a child’s wish list at this event.
Toy donations will be accepted during the following LFC matches:
Tue, Dec. 9 vs. Basel
Sun, Dec. 14 vs. Manchester United
Wed, Dec. 17 vs. Bournemouth
If you are unable to get to the Phoenix Landing but are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact Kristine McKenna, LFC Boston’s Charity and Outreach Coordinator at KristineMcKenna@LFCBoston.com.
This Sunday, LFC Boston members will have priority entry to the Phoenix Landing for Championship Sunday. Need I tell you that LFC could still win the title this year!
Doors will open at 8:30am. LFC Boston Members Only will be allowed in to the bar 8:30-8:45am. (15 minute window) Simply skip the line and show your member card to the bouncer.
Non-members will not be allowed into the bar until 8:45am sharp. There will be no exceptions.
One member card = one entry.
If you are a member and arrive after 8:45am, you will have to get in line with everyone else as priority entry WILL NOT apply after 8:45am.
I advise members to get to the Landing no later than 8:15am. There will be one line for members and one line for general admission.
NBC will be at the Landing on Sunday and want to do live shots of LFC Boston singing before, during, and after the game. Bring your scarves and flags, and your singing voice and let’s show America and the world, what our wonderful supporters club is all about. Also, please post your photos to Twitter using #LFCBoston, #PHXSoccer, and #BPLonNBC and we’ll ReTweet them during the game on the @LFCBoston account – so will NBC and the Phoenix Landing.
We are Liverpool.
(If you are not a member but want to watch the game with LFC Boston on Sunday, you are advised to get in line as early as possible.) Once members get into the bar, there will be room for 40-60 LFC fans through general admission.
As always, Thirty Friday No. 9 was a hilarious night out. Not only was it well, attended, and there were also a few newcomers (which we love) but there was an autographed Jamie Carragher Istanbul scarf up for grabs.
Here’s a short video that captures some of the scenes of the recent tournament the supporters club held for our late friend, Marty Collins. It was a fantastic occasion that included Boston-based supporters squads from England, Romania, and a nice mixture in the form of a Rest of the World squad. Of course, there was also a Liverpool supporters squad that even teamed up with some Manchester United supporters to field a strong team.
Despite the Red’s fans best efforts, the championship trophy went to the English squad. Even so, it was a fantastic event and everyone is already excited for a tournament next year that will hopefully include more teams.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to a few people:
Jon Tee for filming the event and making us look much better than we really are.
Kevin Treanor owner of the Phoenix Landing, and Ian Gunniss an LFC Boston committee member for organizing the event.
And most importantly, we want to send out our appreciation to Marty’s nephew, Kieran, who made the trip from Liverpool to honor his uncle with some fantastic play down the left wing.
