Calendar Puzzle


Haven't done a puzzle here for awhile, so here's a nifty one -- I took this from THIS SITE (and re-worded it very slightly):
If Friday-the-13th occurs in a given month, then the sum of the calendar dates for the Fridays in that month is 6 + 13 + 20 + 27 = 66. What is the largest possible sum of calendar dates for SEVEN consecutive Fridays in any given year?
