John Billings Benefit 1

The island came together to benefit John Billings and his fight against cancer, raising over $50,000 in one night at Jetties Beach, Wednesday, June 20. Billy and Debba conducted the live auction; Sheppard’s Pie played the first part of the night; then Joshua Tree played the second part, volunteering their time on the same night they were to play at the Box. Annie Quatrano chef/owner of Bacchanalia, Floataway Cafe and Star Provisions, all in Atlanta, Georgia, came back to the island to help with the food.

Roy Flanders has offered to match, up to $1,000, any contribution of $50 or more made as a result of this newsletter. Make the check out to John Billings, notate it “Old Days Match”, and mail to me at POB 929, Nantucket.

All photographs are for sale. To buy any photo or to see more photos of this event, go to the Mahon About Town Photo Pages.
