Thunder Nites benefits Brendan O’Brien family, local economy
A week after an onsalught of motorcycles rolled into Newton for the first Thunder Nites event of the summer, the economic impact to both Newton and those close to the Thunder Nites organization is clear.
Thunder Nites in Newton committee member Libbie Marshall explained just how immensely one portion of the event impacted a local family.
“We pulled out all the stops to hold the 50/50 raffle for the O’Brien family,” Marshall said. “It raised about $2,300 for Bob O’Brien to help with the funeral costs for his son ... as soon as he saw how much money it was, he said, ‘I’m going to buy a headstone.’”
