Ron Golden has been seriously ill for over four years with incurable chronic pancreatitis and is unable to work. Brenda Golden has been caring for Ron, while struggling to run her entertainment magazine, Coconut Times. Let’s help our neighbors pay their medical bills. 100% of the net proceeds from funds raised from the admission donations, silent auction and raffles will go to provide relief for the Golden family.
Brenda Golden said earlier this week, “I’m amazed and overwhelmed at the huge response. I can’t wait to see you all and for Ronnie to see how much people care.” Help Brenda and her family take care of Ron. A $20 admission donation will be collected at the doors of Dead Freddies on 64th Street and the bay in Ocean City on Wednesday, November 3rd. The doors open at 6 pm and the party will run until 10 pm.
The Coconut Times newspaper is dedicated to fun in the sun and after dark. Coco Nights, written by editor Brenda Golden, provides music news and an inside track to some of our entertainers, as well as a guide to who’s playing around town. Find out what’s happening on the music scene in Ocean City in the band listings of Who’s Where When. And a comprehensive list of community events is provided weekly in the Calendar of Events section.
The Golden Family Benefit will be catered by 8 different Ocean City restaurants that have been featured in the Coconut Times Best Bite articles. Be sure to try Captain Ron’s Pirate Punch, prepared by Ron Golden himself. The silent auction will feature work from local artists, crafters, original Coconut Times cover art, and packages from your favorite area businesses.
Brenda Golden has been instrumental in supporting local business, musicians and artists alike for more than 20 years now through her efforts as a performer, a writer, an editor and now owner of The Coconut Times. For several years now the Coconut Times has been awarding a local musician and/or band with their "Entertainers of the Year award".
