‘We are thrilled to be joined by Robin Young, Ray Magliozzi and Doug Berman – a constellation of stars from WBUR who will light up the room,’ says Party Chair Maggie McNally. ‘In addition, we’ll have our own Food For Free star power at the party – past Executive Director David Leslie and his successor, Sasha Purpura.’ The annual event attracts long-standing and new supporters who mingle with the luminaries while enjoying food and drink donated by a stellar list of restaurants including Rendezvous, Stone Hearth Pizza, Upstairs on the Square and Cambridge Brewing Company. There is also a silent auction of items generously donated by local businesses and, for dancing the night away, live music by One Thin Dime.
