Fundraiser for The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation

A night of great fun and entertainment will take place on Thursday, February 26, at the Florian Hall in Dorchester to benefit The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation.

The Foundation was formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013.

“The Foundation will be a legacy for Martin, allowing us to “pay it forward” and make a difference in ways that would make him proud but also a source of healing and purpose for us," stated the Richard Family.

This is the second year of the fundraiser and guests can expect an evening of live Irish music with performances by Irish dancers, a DJ and lots of raffles on the night.

Suggested donation is $20 at the door & presale tickets; alternatively, selling tickets for $100 for 2 chances to win $5,000. For tickets/donations, please contact:Mike: 617-833-2475; Tricia: 617-592-6582; Kathy: 781-325-3243
