In its second year, A Legendary Evening is an elegant fundraiser for the T&G Santa Fund, which grants toys, books and gifts to approximately 10,000 children in Central Massachusetts. In its 79th year, the T&G Santa fund helps make the holiday season merrier for approximately 5,000 Massachusetts families in need. In 2016, A Legendary Evening special guest was David "Big Papi" Ortiz and we were able to raise over $35,000 during the evening through donations and auctions. In addition, our readers contributed another $150,000 to bring the 2016 total raised to an impressive $185,000 from 1,500 different donors with 100% of the proceeds going right back to the community.
This year, A Legendary Evening will consist of a cocktail hour, sit down dinner and live and silent auctions. The highlight of the evening will be a moderated discussion with former New England Patriot, Tedy Bruschi. Our mission is to provide an interactive and unique experience for our guests, donors, and legends, while raising money for a heart-warming cause.
Tickets level vary and include a three-course dinner option for $200 per ticket. Balcony and cocktail-only tickets are $100. Limited Availability.
