The horrific bomb attacks during the Boston Marathon sickened and outraged us all, and for many of us, there was a feeling of helplessness as we watched brave citizens rush to the aid of the injured. Many of those injured will have had their lives shattered in a single moment, facing a long and arduous road to recovery, and changes to their lives that they had probably never imagined, let alone planned for. Finances for many will be stretched to breaking by hospital and other bills. The City of Boston has launched a fund, www.onefundboston.org, to raise money for those people impacted by the attack. LAdrinks2Boston is a one-day event on Saturday, April 27th, where members of the hospitality community promote events and initiatives to raise money for this fund. We are involved and need your support!
On Saturday, all 213 DTLA venues will be offering a Boston Punch for around $8. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the OneFundBoston organization in their efforts to help financially those affected. Do your part and join us. Help us help Boston! Not only will you be supporting a great cause but depending on how much you drink you may receive a cool buzz as well. Make it a priority!
