Party of the Year!


I want to tell you about one of the Best Parties in Boston.  Each year about this time the organization Helping Hands Monkey Helpers throws their fund raiser. It’s truly fabulous. The food featured is by some of the best chefs/restaurants in Boston. They all get together to participate in what has become one of the stellar events this city has to offer.

Ever since I met David Sedaris (yes, the David Sedaris) at one of their events, I have been a volunteer. I can walk, and move about all day long any way I’d like. But there are those who are confined to a wheel-chair or disabled with spinal cord injuries. These monkey helpers (actual capuchin monkeys) make a difference in their lives. The lovely little creatures help them with daily activities like opening doors, switching the lights off and on, and even turning the pages of a book. I feel supporting this organization is a good thing to do. And the money raised goes to sending the Monkey’s to the Monkey College so they can learn how to help their recipients.
This Saturday September 28th is the event. It runs from 6-9 at the WGBH Studios.  You might see some of Boston’s best party people while enjoying live music and a superb a wine tasting bar and spirited cocktails! It’s quite a scene.
Please join us. I promise you will have a wonderful evening. And, as you stroll about the event you will be helping those who can’t.

Just hit the link below for more info. And, if you already have plans you can still contribute and participate in the live auction. You won’t believe how much fun some of the items are. Take a peek now and see for yourself. Thank you in advance for those of you who can make it and to those of you who contribute online.
