DERBY – Ronney Lyster, owner of Northpoint Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and the Auto Saver Group, kicked off the 2013 Hungerfest Friday by donating $10,000 to Northeast Kingdom Community Action (NEKCA).
Proceeds will benefit NEKCA's Hungerfest, a food drive for the local food shelf. Other businesses such as Fred's Plumbing and Heating donated to NEKCA as well. NEKCA is planning a variety show at the Haskell Opera House Saturday, Oct. 19 to raise money. As of Friday, committee members had lined up Mark Shelton, Tony O'Connor, Tod Pronto, Deveney Choquette, and Wayne Warner.
