Inspired by the holiday spirit of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, in partnership with 96.1 WSRS, the Worcester County Food Bank and Price Chopper, has committed to donate ticket proceeds of the Sunday, December 23 performance of A CHRISTMAS CAROL to the 20th Annual Feed Worcester County Food Drive. Consumers are asked to show their Price Chopper Advantage Card at the box office or mention it on the phone when purchasing tickets to the Sunday, December 23 performance of A CHRISTMAS CAROL at 1pm, and 50% of each ticket price will benefit the Worcester County Food Bank.

Tom Holt, WSRS program director and longtime supporter of the Food Drive, commented on the station’s involvement with both organizations stating, “WSRS is proud to be a part of two great Worcester traditions.
