Fundraiser set for Sunday to raise money for memorial for Nashua man
Friends and family of a Nashua man who died earlier this year are trying to raise money for a monument by holding a benefit in Hollis this weekend.
Mark Grandmaison, 48, died on Feb. 10 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack after a long battle with illness. On Sunday, friends and family will hold a concert and raffle benefit at Alpine Grove Banquet Facility, 19 South Depot Road, Hollis, from 1-6 p.m. to raise money for a monument to mark his grave.
The event will feature live music from four bands – Stone Castle, Old No. 7 Band, Project Mess and Fully Loaded – as well as raffle prizes, including gift certificates to local restaurants, Mayhem Ink and a guitar, according to organizer Ken Grant.
“He was just a brother from another mother,” Grant said. “That’s why I’m doing this.”
Tickets cost $20 for individuals and $30 for a couple. They’ll be available at the door or by calling Grant at 765-9281. Cash and raffle donations are also welcome.
Grandmaison was a lifelong Nashua resident, according to his obituary, and worked at Scrap Metals, owned by his father, Ansel Grandmaison. He loved motorcycles and spending time with his family and friends.
