Fundraiser this Thursday, September 11th for Isaac Gingras!

pizap.com14100968572471

This Thursday from 4 to 8pm, 50% of all proceeds at the Red Barn will be donated to the Gingras family to help them with the travel expenses to take turns staying with Isaac while he is in the hospital in Vermont, and to help alleviate the financial stress of missing work to take care of Isaac.

**Update** As of today, September 7th, the drain that was in Isaac lung is no longer working and he will be headed into surgery again to drain the fluid in his lung.

Isaac Gingras was rushed to the hospital in Burlington Vermont late in the evening on September 2nd from St. Lawrence College in upstate New York. He was suffering from fluid around his lung and possible mass in his lung. Surgery was performed immediately to drain the fluid. He is still in the hospital with a tube in his lung to continue drainage and has undergone testing and waiting for results. If all goes well he may be out of the hospital next week. Please keep Isaac in your prayers and help this great young man to full recovery. A young man who not only dedicated himself through hard work toward leading the Cony Football team to a State Championship but also gave back of himself by giving countless hours to our youth by coaching football at the youth level.

Isaac was a tri-sport athlete at Cony, playing center on the football team, goalie for lacrosse and was also on the wrestling team. Isaac started the tradition of the Cony Football team coming into the Red Barn every Thursday after practice for dinner!

When we reached out to his parents to find out if they would accept our help, we also learned Isaac’s mom, Joyce, has been struggling with health issues of her own and is currently receiving chemotherapy treatment.

Stephen King Movie Marathon Fundraisers to Benefit the Skowhegan Drive-In!

Help us and the Red Barn Cares Foundation Save the Skowhegan Drive-In!

Just last summer we helped Ry Russell of the Saco Drive-In by sharing the Honda Drive-In contest link on our Facebook page, with your help and votes and the help of many other Maine businesses, the Saco Drive-In was one of the five theaters nationally to win a free digital upgrade from Honda! Many of our fans asked us to help the Skowhegan Drive-In raise enough money to convert to digital so it can remain open after this season.

With the blessing of Mr. King and the help of his Assistant and film agent, we were able to secure archival films from Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Sony Studios.

Friday August 1st the gates at the Skowhegan Drive-In will open at 6:30pm, the films will begin at dusk with Pet Sematary, followed by Christine and The Shining. Pizza will be provided by Al’s pizza, beverages will be provided by Coca-Cola of South Portland and the concession stand will also be open.
