Mon Ami holding benefit for Richie Saponari

We are very sorry to report that Richie Saponari, the husband of Salvation Army Ottawa County Director Maureen Saponari, passed away last Friday. He was one of those “characters” on the local scene that made life more interesting and fun! Mon Ami is planning a special benefit for Richie this coming Tuesday, April 22 from 6-10 p.m. They are asking a minimum $20 donation at the door or you can purchase tickets at the following locations: The Beacon, Minuteman Press, Mon Ami or the Crow’s Nest. All proceeds will go to his medical expenses. Ronnie Howard and his band, Cruisin’, along with the Flashback 3 band from Seniors Gone Wild (which Richie organized and got started) will provide the entertainment. He also started Island Idol, another popular entertainment venue from past years. He knew how to twist my arm to get me to judge many of those Island Idol events. For more information, contact Mon Ami at 419-797-4445.

We want to wish a very happy 50th Birthday to the late Earl Warnke’s favorite daughter (I won’t mention any names). All I can say is that she looks terrific and still knows how to have lots of fun!
