The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club 2015 Tim Russert Summer Groove was held the evening of August 15th at the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club. For the past 14 years the event has evolved to become a highlight of the summer by featuring a fabulous evening of fine food and drinks and a festive dance party. One Step Ahead was honored to provide the entertainment for this wonderful event in 2015.
The event began with a cocktail hour including specialty cocktails, passed appetizers, sushi bar and more. The entertainment, music by One Step Ahead, followed a sit down dinner. The 2015 event was even more spectacular than previous years, as the brand new, state of the art gymnasium was showcased!
In 2008, Chuck Geschke and Maureen Hackett, Board Directors, introduced the Tim Russert Spirit of Hope Fund. The fund will keep Tim’s spirit alive for the children of the island for years to come as building and renovation projects are finished. In 2009 the Tim Russert Spirit of Hope Award was created to continue his legacy. Past recipients include Lucile Hays, Maureen Hackett, Chuck Geschke, Robin and EJ Harvey and Richard Glidden. This year’s award was presented to Zona Tanner-Butler.
