BURLINGTON – The Eighth Annual Vermont Lake Monsters “Hot Stove” Banquet and Auction helped raise over $12,000 to benefit Jim’s House, the club announced today.

Jim’s House, founded and named after Jim Crevier who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) in 1997 and died in 2001, is a house made available for people with Neurological Diseases and their care providers coming to Fletcher Allen Health Care from such a distance to require an overnight stay.

“We are overwhelmed by the support that was received from the community and the generosity from all those who donated their time and money to such a great cause,” said Steve Shover, a member of the Board of Directors for Jim’s House.

The “Hot Stove” Banquet and Auction also inducted two new members, Dan Marlow and Ralph Guillette, into the Vermont Lake Monsters Community Hall of Fame sponsored by TD Banknorth and was entertained by former Boston Red Sox Rico Petrocelli as the night’s guest speaker.

“It was a successful evening and was certainly one of our best auctions ever,” said Vermont Lake Monsters General Manager C.J. Knudsen. “We were ecstatic to have been able to raise so much money for such a worthwhile charity and to have such a successful Hot Stove.”

The money raised for Jim’s House not only came from an on-line auction and live auction at the “Hot Stove” Banquet and Auction, but also from the team’s annual jersey auction which took place on September 5th at the final home game of the season. For more information on Jim's House, visit
