Spring Forward

The family and friends of the Old North Church invite you to join them for their 2015 fund raising Gala “SPRING FORWARD” on Thursday, March 19th, from 6 to 9pm, at Filippo’s Ristorante, conveniently located at 283 Causeway St. in Boston’s Historic North End.

Old North Church is a revered historic landmark and a Boston treasure. Our annual gala is the major fundraiser for the year.  All are welcome. Meet new friends, show your support, and share memories in a festive setting.

Gala and raffle event proceeds support the following:

  • Old North Church outreach programs
  • Piccoli Regali, a resource that provides local seniors with socialization and food assistance during the long winter months
  • A summer internship provides paid employment opportunities for Boston area high school students.

The $75 ticket price includes substantial hors d’ oeuvres, cash bar, dancing and silent auction.

There is also an amazing raffle opportunity to win an Italian Getaway. The lucky raffle winner will receive a week long stay at Sei Stelle, a charming B&B located in Sulmona, (Abruzzo) Italy where you will stay in a 2 bedroom suite, with private bath. The 13th century home has been totally renovated to include modern amenities like air conditioning and high speed internet access. Private Art and cooking lessons can be arranged. The prize includes $1000 in addition to the B&B accommodations. This dream vacation would not be possible without the generosity of Anna and Filippo Frattaroli, who have graciously donated the suite in their beautiful home.

  • Gala Ticket price: $75
  • Raffle ticket prices: 1 for $20, 3 for $50, 7 for $100. (Raffle tickets can be purchased standalone without buying a ticket to the event.)
  • Purchase tickets by phone at 617-523-6676 or click here to order online.

Raffle tickets can be purchased separate from gala tickets. You do not need to be at the event to win the Italian Getaway raffle prize.  Only 400 raffle tickets will be sold!  Take a chance on an amazing prize while helping Old North fulfill its dual missions as active church and national historic landmark. Those who purchase Italian Getaway raffle tickets online will, within 48 hours, receive an e-mail from Old North containing the purchaser’s raffle ticket numbers.
