Viva! for Anthony from the Greasy Pole Champs

The friends and family of Anthony “Matza” Giambanco came out in legions to help Anthony in his battle against cancer. The fundraiser was held Saturday night at the Saint Peter’s Club. Friendship, delicious dinner, raffle, and a live auction made for a great night.

If you need help with anything regarding the online auction, contact Walt Kolenda at or phone/text at 978-395-7077.

If you don’t want to bid, or get outbid, no worries you can still help out. There is a donate button at the top right of the page or you can send a check to the Gloucester Fund at 45 Middle Street, Gloucester MA 01930. Please write Anthony Giambanco in the memo line. Thank you!
