    Good Day,
    I am a co-founder of, a Gloucester based not-for-profit business that provides information on motorcycle related, charity events and other fundraisers for those in need. My business partner and I are undertaking a venture this November 9th to help make a contribution to the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office Shop with a Cop program. We are coordinating a Gloucester Restaurant Challenge , where locally owned and operated eating establishments will come together next to the Main St branch of the Gloucester Library, and provide samples of a particular culinary delight, and their offerings will be judged by the public, who will be asked to make a small donation to sample it. This event happens to be on the same day that Chesapeake Bank is encouraging the concept of “Shop Local” and it struck me that this would be an ideal situation. There will also be a Shop with a Cop Car Show taking place the same day in the parking lot of the library. I have sent information to Ms. Northstein regarding our event.
