This included, but was certainly not limited to, Happy Hours, Great Balloon Races, Old Newsboy Days, Miss Great Adventure Pageants, Helping Hand Marathons, WFIL Christmas Parties numerous public relations events at regional malls, shopping centers, car dealerships, restaurants, high school dances, clubs, lounges, etc., etc. throughout the tri-state area. Tony provided the equipment, WFIL provided the Boss Jocks. Thanks, Tony!!!!

    Jerry passed away, on February 24, 2002.
