The 7th John Kane Penny Pitch

It used to be the KNCO Penny Pitch at Kane’s Restaurant. Last years pitch was the last time I saw John Kane – he died 5 days later. I am happy to say our last meeting was a good one with kind words and a bear hug. Saturday we celebrated and remembered this man who came to our community and embraced it. The relationship was reciprocal and that was evident in the turnout. Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition was the benefactor of this outpouring with more money raised than any previous pitch. John would be so proud. Thank you to all who gave their time, effort and resources to this great event.
