SOUTHBRIDGE — In esoteric circles, 33 is supposedly a magic number, and it apparently worked its magic for FoodShare.

The local food pantry's 33rd Radiothon netted $28,582 Thursday, April 5, a figure group President Ray Fournier said was "a new record" and expects to climb into the $32,000 range once late contributions come in.

"I can't complain about a day like this," he said after the annual event went off the air in WESO's studios. "Next year, we'll really need the people to participate. We can't just wait for the corporate sponsors."
