The Army-Navy Football Luncheon, produced annually by The Ahern Family Charitable Foundation, is returning to Scoreboard Sports Bar & Grill in Woburn, MA on December 8th for its 15th year. Local Somerville resident Jeanne Ahern has been a part of the fundraising since the beginning.
Each year, the Army-Navy Football Luncheon raises funds that support Massachusetts children of fallen and deployed troops during the holiday season through the Operation Santa-Massachusetts program. Hundreds of people attend the event to watch this traditional American Football rivalry take place while enjoying a buffet lunch, raffles, silent and live auction, and supporting our troops.
Local celebrity guests set to attend this year’s luncheon so far are President of the Medal of Honor Society Navy Lieutenant Thomas Kelly, WERS morning host George Knight, Magic 106.7 Morning Host David O’Leary, comedian Dave Russo, Alt 929 personality Amy Brooks, WBZ Radio news announcers Tina Gao and Matt Phipps, and more.
