Other items also include: a complimentary weekend stay at the Liberty Hotel, two tickets to Alvin Ailey in Providence, autographed sports memorabilia, tickets and more!

A highlight of the event is the special menu featuring delicious dishes from Boston’s most renowned restaurants and chefs, including: Dunn and Gaherin’s, Bond, The Biltmore, The Local 149, Fiorella’s Express, Jo Brasserie and more. The restaurants’ creations will be featured as “Small Tastings.” Double Cross Vodka and Sierra Nevada Brewery are the featured beverage sponsors for the event.
