Linden Ponds Raises More than $3000 for Massachusetts Hospital School

Hingham, MA - Hundreds of people who live at Linden Ponds raised more than $3000 for the Massachusetts Hospital School by attending a performance of "Love is a Many Splendored Thing" presented by Showstoppers at Linden Ponds. "Our residents look forward to this event every year so they can help the Massachusetts Hospital School," said Joe McStowe, Community Services Manager, Linden Ponds.  "Best Chevy sponsors the entire event so all of the ticket sales and donations go directly to Mass Hospital.  We can't thank them enough." Tickets were $10 and the show took place on February 14 at 7:30pm in the Performing Arts Center. This annual event at Linden Ponds has been taking place since 2006. Because of the generosity of Linden Ponds residents, each year a young individual has been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Disney. Donations help to cover the high costs of healthcare, equipment, and travel expenses for a wheelchair bound and/or disabled youth.
