Step Into the Past with Glass Onion Band

Charity Bar Night: Team MR8
Local runner Ed Kelly has been chosen to be one of 50 runners on team MR8 at this year’s Boston Marathon. He is the only runner on the team chosen from the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Partnering with Polo Grill and Bar to plan a Charity Bar Night, Kelly hopes to reach his individual fundraising goal of $7,500.
