Winthrop residents of all ages will be â€œdancinâ€™ in their seatsâ€ Saturday night when 70â€™s icons Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes and Evelyn Champagne King come to Miller Field for the Viking Pride Foundationâ€™s annual summer fundraising event.
Last yearâ€™s event featured Tavares (another legendary group from the disco era) and was a huge success that was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.
The Viking Pride Foundation has donated more than $600,000 to support programs of all kinds in the Winthrop schools, a contribution that has made a significant difference in the educational experience of Winthropâ€™s public school students during this era of unprecedented budget shortfalls.
Tickets for Saturday nightâ€™s party are $50 for preferred seating on the field and $20 for bleacher seats. We urge all of our readers to come out both to support the VPF and our schools and to have a great time where we can meet our friends and neighbors.
