Off the field, attendees took part in the Ultimate Fan Experience, which included activities that allowed them to test their pitching speed, take a few swings in a batting cage, or join in a variety of contests and other activities."

It's cold outside, and we all know how it feels to leave our gloves or scarf at home by accident. But, not having a coat at all? Can you say "buuuurrrrrrrrrrr?" There are many people in Boston who go without the warmth that many of us are graced with every day. Due to the charities, non profit organizations, and local businesses across Boston, many people are able to get that coat... the one they would have never had.
Barbour on Newberry Street is partnering with One Warm Coat and have decided to once again (4th year) to host another annual coat drive. This year's coats will support the City Mission Society of Boston.
Grab one of your gently worn coats or jackets and drop it off at Barbour (134 Newbury Street) tomorrow from 10AM to 6PM and Barbour will give you a $50 discount if you want to buy a new jacket. This is for a great cause, and even though we give and expect nothing in return, this charitable moment in your life will actually has some cash rewards.
Start the holiday season off right and head over to The Barbour Store in Back Bay tomorrow!
So today it a big day. Why? BECAUSE IT IS MY BIRTHDAY! Since I honestly have nothing exciting going on, (besides pretending like i'm still in college at a frat party in my living room) I have decided to share a very great event with you that is on Thanksgiving Day. This coming up Thursday in Brighton, Ray Ciccolo’s Boston Volvo Village is sponsoring their Annual Volvo 5k Road Race to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter. This is for a great cause, and is only $25 dollars. If you get your tickets quick, the first 750 people to sign up get a t-shirt! Most of you will share this day with your families, friends, and loved ones. Get everyone together, put on your tennis shoes, and run this 5K for a great cause - besides, you may need to burn some calories before your Thanksgiving dinner, and don't even deny it!
Hello all you animal loving people, especially dog lovers! It's that time of year again for Dogfest! This year the festival will be held in a new location - Trum Field on Broadway in Somerville. This fundraiser is great because it helps raise money for many local animal-related charities. It's also great because 1. It's free (donations encouraged) and 2. There will be many exciting dog sports demonstrations and multiple "try it" rings so the attendees can try sports and games with their dogs.
"A major partner and key element in the success of this event is the City of Somerville's active participation and support of the event," said Dr. Adam Parker of Porter Square Veterinarian and president of the foundation. "Our goal is to provide opportunities for families to enjoy healthy activities in the city with their dog and raise funds to support animals in need."
So grab the pups, dog, animal, man's best friend or whatever you call your favorite thing in the world and enjoy a day at Dogfest this Sunday!

This is a once-a-year event, people...so don't miss out. The Saint Joseph Society is a charitable organization based in the world renowned North End of Boston. They celebrate their patron saint every year on the last weekend in July and always invite everyone in the Boston area to celebrate with them.
So what does this celebration entail? FOOD my friends, REALLY GOOD FOOD! Actually, a feast of food. Maybe I'm really excited because I'm hungry right now, but I know someone who has been before and they said it is quite the treat!
I'll admit, I wrote in the school newspaper in college, but there is no way I am up for writing a biography right now. AKA - if you want to learn more about Saint Joseph then click here. More focused on the food? Well, I guess I will see you in a week! (Friday the 27th- Sunday 29th) ps. I left the worst for last this time... tickets are a little bit expensive BUT it is for a good cause! Quit complaining sign up!
