The Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (a.k.a. LUPEC) held their fall fundraiser at the Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center last night. It was a 1940s-style party with lots of swing dancing and WWII-era music, and everyone was dolled up. The Boston Derby Dames wore rollerskates and carried hors d'oeuvre trays full of chocolates for the guests. The line for the bar was incredibly long, but that was a good sign...the place was packed...and that means more money was raised for the gals at the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans. Here are some snapshots from the party...
