Elite Boston Landmark Realty held a successful collection and party on December 5th to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Over 60 friends and neighbors stopped by to enjoy the food donated by Bricco’s Frank DePasquale. Adding to the spread, Janet Gilardi made her coconut shrimp and stuffed mushrooms.
Some notable attendees included John and Patricia Romano from North End Against Drugs, State Representative Aaron Michlewitz and City Councilor Sal LaMattina.
Co-owners Maria DiTullo and Toni Gilardi said the Marines carried 15 extra large leaf bags along with another car full of toys larger than any bag could hold. There were big red balloons for all the brave young North Enders who gave up a toy.
Expressing their gratitude for the generosity of their family, friends and clients, Toni said “Thank you with all our hearts! Our community rocks!”
