FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Boston Globe Sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy Dines at Scoreboard Sports Bar and Grill with Silent Auction Winner Jack Miller

Woburn, Massachusetts – January 26, 2016 – For Boston sports fans, there is no writer more distinguished than the Globe's Dan Shaughnessy. Journalist, columnist, author and television and radio personality, Shaughnessy has most notably been a sportswriter for the Boston Globe for the past 35 years, during which he has been named Massachusetts Sportswriter of the Year eleven times, and voted one of America's top 10 sports columnists by AP Sports Editors nine times.

On December 12, 2015, Scoreboard hosted the 12th annual Ahern Family Charitable Foundation Army-Navy Football Luncheon. This year it benefited the Military Friends Foundation's Operation Santa-Massachusetts, which provides financial assistance to families associated with the Massachusetts National Guard and Reserve. The proceeds were used to provide holiday gift cards to the children of deployed and fallen soldiers. From admission to raffle tickets to silent auction items, the Ahern family and their gracious volunteers raised an outstanding number, as well as awareness and support of the organization itself.

One of the aforementioned silent auction prizes was the chance to come to Scoreboard for dinner with Dan Shaughnessy. Jack Miller, whose business is in Woburn, was the highest bidder and claimed his prize last Wednesday, January 20th.

"Thank you for all the Scoreboard does in supporting this, it is dear to my heart having a Marine Son, who has done 5 tours in the Middle East, 19 years in and now living in Amman Jordan," Miller commented the next day.

"The Ahern Family foundation does such a great job supporting the families of our troops, we consider it a privilege to be the venue of the Army-Navy luncheon," said Frank Vento, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza Boston-Woburn, " and I've been a big fan of Dan Shaughnessy's for years, so it was such an honor to have him join us."

"It was so much fun meeting Dan, I used to read his columns in The Globe growing up. He was so down to earth and easy to talk to!" said Danielle Rogers, the seasoned Scoreboard server who had the pleasure of taking care of Miller and Shaughnessy that night.

Scoreboard Sports Bar and Grill is located in the Crowne Plaza Boston-Woburn on 15 Middlesex Canal Park, right off of I-95, exit 35. For further information, please visit www.scoreboardwoburn.com or call at (781) 897-4000.

For a dozen years, Bob Ahern and his family have made it their mission to help the families of veterans serving overseas and those who have lost their lives.
That tradition will continue Dec. 12 when the Ahern Family Charitable Foundation hosts its 12th annual Army–Navy Football Luncheon at The Scoreboard at The Crowne Plaza in Woburn.
According to Ahern, this year's luncheon will benefit the Military Friends Foundation's Operation Santa-Massachusetts, which provides financial assistance to families associated with the Massachusetts National Guard and Reserve. Proceeds will be used to provide holiday gift cards to children of deployed and fallen soldiers.
Ahern, a native of Arlington, has strong ties to the military and law enforcement. He served in the Army Reserve and the Massachusetts Army National Guard before being honorably discharged in 1991. Those ties run throughout the Ahern family. His father Bo served in Vietnam with the Marines. Brother Steve was also a Marine. He and a second brother, Chris, are officers with the Cambridge Police Department.
In 1992, Ahern began a career in law enforcement, first with the Metropolitan Police Department and later the Massachusetts State Police, where he now serves as the bomb squad commander for the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit at Logan International Airport. While attending the Medal of Honor Convention in Boston earlier that year, he met Tom Lyons, the former executive director of the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans and currently the director of community services at MassHousing in Boston.
Lyons explained the plight of homeless veterans and Ahern took it to heart.
"I wasn't really aware of that problem. Tom inspired me. There's an old saying, 'You never leave a man behind,' and I believe that," said Ahern. "It never hit me there could me homeless veterans. I didn't put two and two together."
After a discussion with his wife Eileen, what was once a St. Patrick's Day celebration at home became a party on a much larger scale at the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham in 2002. After selling approximately 350 tickets, Ahern raised $10,000 for the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans.
While the issue of homelessness among veterans has garnered more attention in recent years, more still needs to be done.
"Once we're able to get a veteran into a stable environment and get back on track, we don't just let them go own their own. Now we provide services and help them reunite with their families," Ahern said. "The support services have made a difference."
Advocates are now getting people into more permanent housing and out of shelters at a faster rate.
As a result of his work with Ahern, Lyons said he supports the foundation as much as he can. After U.S. forces entered Afghanistan, Ahern said Reservists and National Guard members were being called to active duty to serve overseas.
"It put a financial strain on families of guardsmen and reservist," he said.
After earning status as a 501(c)(3) charity, the foundation held a St. Patrick's Day gala for the next few years, growing larger each year. The gala is on hiatus until 2017, but the foundation's efforts to care for families of veterans is ongoing.
"We came up with the idea of a less-formal event to supplement the gala," Ahern said.
The result was the first Army-Navy Luncheon in 2004 with about 50 guests. The venue has changed over years, but for the last five years, the luncheon has been held at The Scoreboard.
"We now have as many as 400 to 500 guests, including local TV and radio celebrities and former professional athletes like Terry O'Reilly and Steve Grogan," said Ahern.
This year's guests include two Medal of Honor recipients -- retired Navy Capt. Thomas Kelley and retired Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts.
Grateful
Ahern said he's grateful for the efforts of the Crowne Plaza.
"They're very generous to us. The staff is awesome and they look forward to us coming in every year," he said.
Frank Vento, general manager of the Crowne Plaza, said after Ahern explained what he was doing, he quickly agreed to do what he could, which ended up being donating the venue and luncheon at no cost to the foundation.
"We feel very strongly this is a great cause. It's worthy of people contributing to. They won't have the expense of paying for the food and could donate more to the families," said Vento.

According to NESN, Jeremy Mincey, defensive end for the Cowboys, has some personal history with our boys the Patriots. Mincey was drafted in the sixth round of the NFL Draft in 2006 by the Patriots, and made it until final cuts.

Bill Belichick says, "Mincey's a good example of a player that fit a couple of other systems better than he fit ours at that point in time. He'd probably be a better fit in our system now than he was when we drafted him. He's a defensive end, he plays down, he's not in coverage much. He had, at the point we had him, more coverage responsibilities and in the end we had players who did it better than he did."

Before joining the Cowboys in 2014, Mincey played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos.

Mincey comments on the upcoming game, "I'll respect Coach Belichick until the day I die. When I got released, he told me the truth, He said he loved my energy and I had some guys ahead of me like Roosevelt Colvin, Mike Vrabel and Junior Seau just signed, and I was playing linebacker and I barely knew how to play defensive end."
