Brookline Center held a fundraiser gala at the wonderful Fenway Park’s EMC Club. The event was co-chaired by Terry & Jacque Francona to launch the Brookline Center Kid’s Fund which provides free and low-cost programs to the children and families of Brookline community.
The truth is when I first came across this opportunity, though I’d been to Fenway games and married a lifetime Boston Sox fan, I had no idea who Terry Francona was.
And I didn’t think too much of the location of the gala until I read the e-mail a 2nd time, and looked at Dan and said, “So… Fenway Park isn’t a park in the Fenway area, but THE ball park, huh?” He said, ‘Yup, that’s the only one’
Darren Yong, the master magician conducted magic performances throughout the floor
The Chef and owner of Fireplace Restaurant Jim Solomon auctioned off generous custom menu brunches
Along with gathering of the current and new supporters and community partners, it was a full house at the EMC where over $200k was fund raised.
Congratulations to Brookline Center!
