Tom Cole: Tribute To His Brother
MAP is partnering with Tony Mantor of Plateau Music in Nashville to support the Blue with this tribute to Fallen Somerset County Sheriff's Corporal Eugene Cole. Corporal Cole was viciously murdered in the line of duty on April 25th, 2018 in Norridgewock.
Gene not only leaves behind his wife of 41 years and four sons and many relatives including his brother Tom but a grieving law enforcement community as well.
The MAP board and its members have been challenged to step up and support Gene and his family in their time of loss. Recently, Tony Mantor, who was born and raised in Skowhegan, brought Tom Cole and members of Gene's family down to Nashville and made it possible for them to record 5 songs written by Gene as a tribute that are now contained in the CD pictured above.
In addition, Mantor brought together incredibly talented session musicians from throughout Nashville; many who played with well-known artists you listen to today on top radio charts to help in the effort. It is a testament to what Maine people are all about and a team effort in securing the memory and legacy of Gene Cole. In addition, there is a companion DVD that documents the project and efforts, as well as interviews with Mantor, musicians, members of the Cole family and of course; the making of the music.
Tony Mantor has held strong to his Maine roots and the automatic impulse to help his neighbors and friends. Covering the costs involved with the production, he has put together a set of both the CD and DVD; especially for MAP members and LEO's for a special price of $20.00. With our help, we can ensure that ALL PROCEEDS go to the Cole family to assist them in their needs going forward without Gene. The challenge AND the goal given to us is to rally our members and fellow LEO's throughout the state and sell 500 sets which in addition to previous sales will net the Cole family $15,000.00!
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Quite simply, pledge to buy a CD/DVD Set, or several. Encourage or challenge your fellow members or departments to do the same. We know that we can meet this challenge and it is our hope that we will not only reach our goal of 500 sets but put in an order for more! We are doing this by asking you to PRE-ORDER and PLEDGE to purchase sets through the form below.
The DVDs are in the process of final production and the sets will be sent to MAP when they are done and combined with the CDs. This will allow us to have all sets shipped at once and as MAP will be covering the bulk shipping cost, 100% of your $20 purchase price will go to the Cole family.
HELP US SHOW WHAT MAP HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT. PRE-ORDER AND PLEDGE YOUR $20.00 FOR EACH SET YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE! HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME. THIS PLEDGE FORM WILL BE ON THE HOME PAGE AND OPEN TO ALL WHO WOULD LIKE TO HELP OUR CAUSE.
ON BEHALF OF THE MAP'S BOARD, TONY MANTOR AND ESPECIALLY THE COLE FAMILY, YOU HAVE OUR THANKS FOR KEEPING THE FRATERNAL CONCERN FOR OUR BLUE FAMILY.
