Heimlich Maneuvers to Help “Freedom Summer” — The Good Doctor comes through, will you help the cause too?

William Tucker, author of “Freedom Summer,” says Dr. Henry Heimlich, the 93-year-old inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver, has donated $8,000 of the $35,000 needed to take the play about civil voting rights and murder in Mississippi during the 1960s on a nationwide tour.

Tucker and the Shades Reportory Theatre in Haverstraw hope with the help of Kickstarter to raise the $35,000 needed for the venture by April 19, Tucker urges the public to go to Kickstarter.com and search “Freedom Summer” at the top and click the green button to donate.
If the goal of $35,000 is not raised, says Tucker, all donated funds will be returned to the donors.
