Welcome to the 15th annual Baines Barney Breakfast that draws a record crowd to raise $125,000 for the Special Olympics, American Red Cross and the Shirley Brulotte Fund for the International Association of New Hampshire.
``We are going to reach this year over 900 thousand dollars ($900,000) so definitely next year we will go over the one million dollar ($1 million) mark,'' said former Manchester Mayor Bob Baines.
``We never thought this would happen when we first started. This is a modest event.''
The inspiring Chris Dufley gives a moving rendition to the Irish classic O'Danny Boy.
And of course there are political potshots. Southern New Hampshire University basketball coach Stan Spriou on a dream matchup between Senator Kelly Ayotte and Governor Maggie Hassan.
``The governor got here a little late this morning. She was in the garage of Senator Kelly Ayotte, loosening her brakes,'' Spirou quips.
Hassan has fun with two of Manchester's most popular pols, Republican Mayor Ted Gatsas and Democratic Alderman Dan O'Neil.
``I just find it ironic to hear of a discussion between these two about dim lightbulbs,'' Hassan jokes.
Steve Singer auctions off autographed guitars from the Eagles, Rolling Stones and Kiss.
They also sell off autographed jerseys of New England Patriots players along with a signed photograph of Malcolm Butler making the Super Bowl game-winning interception.
And we leave you with again with the New Hampshire Police Association Pipes and Drums.
