Auburn, MA (November 27, 2017) – All is calm and all is bright in Auburn as Project Nova, Inc. announces it’s first-ever Badges & Books fundraiser – Silent Knights! This fun-filled, family-friendly afternoon is free and open to the public. Join the festive fun on Saturday, December 9th at St. Joseph’s Parish Center, located on 68 Central Street in Auburn.

Kids can enjoy police and fire-themes games, story-time with the Cat in the Hat, a meet-and-greet with Paw Patrol’s Chase and Marshall and prizes galore, while kids-at-heart can celebrate the reason for the season by entering a raffle and participating in a silent auction to win incredible prizes courtesy of the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Chipotle, Boston Science Museum, Wachusett Mountain, Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak and Vanna White, and so much more!

All proceeds will go to Project Nova’s Badges & Books initiative, which seeks to stock first responder vehicles with books to gift children who are in a crisis situation. Project Nova, Inc.’s president, Michelle Spano, notes that we cannot underestimate the effect a crisis can have on a child, “studies show that children who experience a crisis oftentimes experience a traumatic rewiring of the brain. By stocking first-responders’ vehicles with activities to engage the child during such events, they can attempt to prevent this rewiring from occurring.” All proceeds from this event will go towards stocking Auburn police and fire department vehicles with these potentially life-changing items.

So round yon Auburnites mother and child, for this festive event for a fantastic cause! Get your FREE tickets now by visiting, and see you at Silent Knights 2017!

About Project Nova, Inc.:
The mission of Badges and Books is to stock first responder vehicles with bags containing new chapter, activity, and picture books (some along with matching stuffed animals) that first responders can gift to a child in crisis. Research shows that the damaging effects of trauma can actually alter a child’s brain. Our program intends to interrupt this process by offering a book or activity to a child to help them briefly escape from the crisis situation they are exposed to and attempt to prevent this traumatic rewiring of the brain.
