Since 2008, Parma native Eddie Tomecko, owner of Hinckley Township-based Audioworks Media, has raised money for local charities through his Good Intentions Foundation. This year, the recipient is Akron Children's Hospital. As this year's fundraiser, the organization is hosting a release party at 4 p.m. today for Christmas Memories Vol. 2, a benefit album that features musical director George Sipl. It includes contributions from Bill March of Beaucoup, guitarist Billy Sullivan, and singer-songwriter Brian Lisik and the Unfortunates, featuring Todd Rundgren alumnus Tim Longfellow. The party takes place at Baron's Hall in Parma. In addition to the $25 ticket, attendees are asked to bring an unopened children's Christmas gift that will go to kids on the hospital's cancer unit. Your ticket includes food, drinks, live entertainment and 50/50 raffles. The Christmas Memories Vol. 2 album, on CD or usb, will be available for $20. A special two-CD package, including both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 will be available for $30 while supplies last.
