MANCHESTER - The 16th annual Bob Baines' Blarney Breakfast hosted by former Manchester Mayor Bob Baines, turned out to be a huge success Friday morning.
The breakfast fundraiser was held at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester to benefit the three non-profits of Special Olympics New Hampshire, the American Red Cross and the Shirley Brulotte Fund - in memory of Bob's sister Shirley.
The event featured guest retired Sergeant Richard “Dic” Donohue, the former MBTA officer who was shot in the leg during the Watertown, Mass. shootout during the events of the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013.
Donohue was asked to be the event's guest speaker where he shared the story of how a blood donation saved his life, after losing almost all of his blood in the shootout.
Bob Baines was also joined by Governor Maggie Hassan's husband Tom, Mayor Ted Gatsas, Stan Spirou and Steve Singer the co-chair of the event.
Over the past 16 years, the breakfast has raised over $900,000 to benefit the charities with this year's total reaching $100,000.
