Scores of Mummers will rally this afternoon at the Mummers Museum to boost awareness about savethemummers.com and about the big Bacon Brothers concert on December 5th at the Electric Factory.  Congressman Bob Brady will be among the elected officials at today’s rally, which starts about three.  Not only do the Mummers deserve support because of their economic benefits to the city, their ambassadorship and their continuing of America’s oldest folk parade, but they give a considerable amount of their private time to charity.  For example, just last night, members of Avalon String Band, led by Captain Jack Hee, performed and pumped up hundreds of people raising money for United Cerebral Palsy of Philadelphia and Vicinity.  I have no doubt they were a highlight of the evening and made people feel even better and more likely to contribute to UCP.  I spoke with Kevin and Michael Bacon and Bunny Sigler this morning on NBC10 at Issue and they are primed and ready for the concert.  It’s a great combination when the three getto perform together with the Bacon Brothers Band.
