Our neighborhood is forever changed by the tragedy of April 15. Dorchester is a community of action and determination, and despite our grief and shock we are compelled to act. On May 19, 2013, we invite you to take part in Hometown Comfort, a day for our community to honor victims and first responders by collecting needed blood for Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Blood Mobile, raising money for The One Fund-Boston, and supporting one another with the embrace of a hometown.
IBEW Local 103 has generously donated the use of its facility at 256 Freeport Street, Dorchester, for this event. The Red Cross will conduct a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. inside the hall. From noon to 4 p.m., in an outdoor event tent, there will be games, food, raffles, and other activities for adults and children. From 6-9 p.m., the tent will be converted for an evening of comfort food, live entertainment, and a live auction.
Admission is $75 per person, $50 if donating blood. Tickets are available at the door.
