Get on your bikes and ride! Or just walk to the Serafina Restaurant in Boston – they call themselves “Casual Italian Dining” – I call them “Brick Oven Pizza Magicians”. Bring yourself and your fun friends to this cocktail party for a good cause.
What’s the cause: to help pediatric patients at Boston Medical Center who are witnesses to violence.
What’s the “Child Witness to Violence” Program? A therapeutic, advocacy, and outreach project from the Boston Medical Center that focuses on the growing number of young children who are hidden victims of domestic and community violence and other trauma-related events.
When is this fun event: Thursday, July 27th, 6pm – 9pm
How does my money help: It goes to sponsor a Boredom Busters team that is participating in the Rodman Ride for Kids.
What’s the Rodman Ride for Kids: It’s the reason this is a pedal party! It’s a bike ride where people raise money to fund over 50 charities for children – 100% of this team’s funds will go to the “Child Witness to Violence” Boston Medical Center Program.
What should I wear: Bike shorts and a helmet. Only. Just kidding. Wear your favorite shirt and all the necessary clothes.
Is there an Early Bird Special: Yes, $25
Can I buy tickets at the door: Yeah but it’s going to cost $40.
What’s the standard price: $35.
Will people be super nice to me at the beginning and then guilt-trip me with the 1997 Sarah McLachlan hit “Arms of an Angel”, while playing a slideshow that dissolves in and out with pictures of sad puppies: No. Buy a ticket, and that’s your contribution. There will also be a raffle, and you can buy some of those as well. And if you want, you can donate above and beyond here.
