100-Year-Old Man's $13,000 Party Benefits Less Fortunate

Tuesday, 12 December 2017 01:43 PM

A 100-year-old Vermont resident threw a $13,000 annual holiday party, with more than 450 people enjoying the fun and food provided.

Anthony Pomerleau says he pays for the entire party each year in Burlington, with this year's bill costing around $13,000. He tells WPTZ-TV he doesn't mind the cost because he "was brought up the hard way" and wants to help the less fortunate with his money.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders helped kick off the first party 37 years ago when Pomerleau asked the independent senator, then mayor of Burlington, if he could throw a holiday dinner. Pomerleau says the party has fed at least 40,000 under-privileged children.

The centenarian also remarked on his age, saying "first of all, I'm 100 years old! Feels pretty good to be here."
