i! i ...... . 56 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25 - MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2013 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE Cape Gazette DMHOA to hold Nov. 25 fundraiser honoring former Baltimore broadcaster Fred Nell Fred Neil, a former Balti- more radio broadcaster, will be honored on his 80th birth- day Monday, Nov. 25, by the Delaware Manufactured Home Owners Association with a Birthday Pizza Party and Roast. This fundraising event will be held at the Indian River Fire Hall, Oak Orchard, Millsboro, starting at 6:30 p.m. The event is open to the pub- lic at no charge. Reservations are required as space is limited, and donations are requested. An auction will be part of the festivities. Among the auction prizes are a NASCAR four-ticket package with four pit passes and a two-ticket package with two ride-alongs from Monster Racing for the spring 2014 race courtesy of Dover Downs Motor Sports. Red Frog, producers of the Firefly Festival, have provid- ed two three-day passes valued at nearly $300 each for 2014. DMHOA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization advocat- ing and providing services for home owners on leased land. The efforts of DMHOA played a significant role in passage of the Rent Justification law passed this year. The organization is holding informational meetings on the law around the state. Neil has been the group's volunteer public affairs officer since 2004 after semi-retiring to Delaware in 2003. His extensive involvement in sports included producing the Baltimore Colts play-by-play radio broadcasts; producing, writing and/or cohosting radio series with John Unitas, Jimmy Orr, Ordell Braase, Tom Matte, and the Orioles' Brooks Robin- son. He was also general manag- er of the Baltimore Banners of World Team Tennis and media director of Laurel Race Course the year Run the Gauntlet won the Laurel International. His most enduring feat was the book he wrote in 1995 with the great basketball referee and NBA coach, Charlie Eckman, titled "It's A Very Simple Game! Life and Times of Charlie Eckman." The late Tom Clancy wrote the foreword to the book. Neil paired Eckman with Colts Hall of Famer Art Donovan for a radio show that became "Mayhem on 33rd Street" on Baltimore TV. In 2005, Neff was the featured speaker at an Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Fame Banquet and the subject of a George Frick Pick column in the Delaware State News. Frick, the legendary sportswriter, wrote, "Fred Neff is an author/humorist first class." For information on the event, contact Ron Amadio, 302-945- 7943. Mountaire leads efforts to curb 'Hunger, Hurt, Hate' during the holidays Volunteers will be on hand Nov. 2 seeking donations in Cape Region No one has to travel 7,000 miles to find "Hunger, Hurt and Hate." Within seven minutes of home, place of worship, school and workplace there is the grow- ing problem of hunger feeding hurt. "For the past 19 years, we have met the challenge to curb the potential growth of hunger to hurt by providing the basics of nutritious meals to those who are hurting - hopefully to begin the healing process for those who no longer feel the pains of hunger," said Roger Marino, Mountaire corporate director of community relations. Mountaire and area communi- ties have provided thousands of canned and boxed food items along with a Mountaire roaster to local residents and families Cape May-Lewes Ferry announces new off- season base schedule Cape May-Lewes Ferry of- ficials have announced that a new off-season base schedule will take effect as of Sunday, Nov. 3.

The program began with Thanksgiving for Thousands, a food program that now provides basics to almost 50,000 people on the three-state peninsula. Thanksgiving has become a trilogy of food events and a time to give thanks for all the good things the Lord has provided. So Mountaire began providing Thanksgiving at Christmas for food shelters, soup kitchens and food pantries. And now. they have a Thanksgiving trilogy that has evolved into Thanksgiving at Easter to provide boxed, canned food and a roaster within the community churches, focusing on individual members at their place of worship. On Saturday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., volunteers from American Legion posts in Sussex and Kent counties, along with church and other community volunteers, will be positioned at these Delaware stores; Gi- ant Foods, Long Neck; Safeway, Rehoboth Beach; Walmart, Rehoboth Beach; Walmart, Georgetown; Walmart, Seaford; Walmart, Milford; Food Lion, Milton and Hocker's, Ocean View. As in the past, they will dis- tribute fliers to patrons seeking their purchase of the following canned and boxed goods in co- operation with the various store managers: canned peas, corn, yams, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix and brownie mix will be the order of the day.
