President Donald Trump’s campaign manager for president in 2016, Corey Lewandowski will be the keynote speaker this year at The Valley Patriot’s 16th Anniversary BASH Scholarship and Award Night on March 27th at the Firefighter’s Reliefs In.
Each year The Valley Patriot gives scholarships to local high school seniors attending college in the fall. The Valley Patriot also honors police officers, firefighters, and veterans with awards to commemorate their service to the community.
This year proceeds from the BASH Raffle will go to help homeless veterans through Clear Path New England.
Joining Lewandowski at the BASH this year will be Democrat Massachusetts State Senator Diana DiZoglio, Republican State Rep. Lenny Mirra, Democrat State Reps. Christina Minicucci and Linda Dean Campbell, former Republican Senator Geoff Diehl, world famous weatherman Al Kaprielian, and up and coming comedy sensation Eric Spagnoli.
Prior to becoming President Trump’s campaign manager in 2016, Corey Lewandowski was a police officer in New Hampshire, worked as a political commentator for CNN, FoxNews, and One America.
“A few years ago our Keynote Speaker was State Auditor Suzanne Bump, who is a left wing progressive democrat. This year we have a conservative republican with Corey Lewandowski. That’s the best part about our annual BASH. Each year the great people of the Merrimack Valley put aside politics and personal conflicts, get together in one room, and take part in helping local kids pay for college, as well as honor police officers, firefighters, and veterans.” said Valley Patriot publisher Tom Duggan.
The Valley Patriot’s 16th Anniversary BASH will be held at the Firefighter’s Reliefs In, 1 Market St. in Lawrence on Friday, March 27th at 7PM.
