Staying in the city and still looking for ways to spend this Memorial Day? How about getting together with good people and good food for a good cause?
In an effort to help one of the service industry's own, the Boston restaurant community will be hosting a fundraiser for Vinny Sapochetti on Monday, May 28 at the Hotel Commonwealth. Vinny, who has worked at the North End's Neptune Oyster for the past 5 years was recently in a terrible car accident. Suffering serious injury, he has since started his journey through speech, occupational and physical therapy. You can read more about him in this recent post on Server not Servant.
Tickets for the fundraiser, Vinny's Tip Jar, are being sold for $105, which grants you access to an open bar from 5pm-10pm along with complimentary food from some of the Boston's best restaurants. Think Toro, Eastern Standard, Neptune Oyster, Uni, Oleana, Russel House Tavern, Strip T's and more. There will also be a live auction and a raffle.
