CityFeast, a special dining experience in Boston’s North End, returns on Sunday, January 29th for its twelfth year to benefit Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Fund, which supports the Center’s greatest needs in research, education and clinical care.
Headlining this year’s restaurants are Antico Forno, Aria Trattoria, Bricco, Lucca, Taranta, Terramia Ristorante, and Tresca. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and includes a 5-course dinner and wine pairings at the participating North End restaurants.
This year, CityFeast honors 26-year-old David Gomes for living with type 1 diabetes for 25 years. He is a graduate of the MCPHS Physician Assistant program in Boston. Joslin has inspired him to want to work in the field of pediatric Endocrinology to help young children deal with the challenges of living with diabetes, and provide them with hope that they can live a full life even with the daily struggles and responsibilities that come with having type 1.
David’s mother, Carla Agrippino Gomes, owner of Antico Forno and Terramia Ristorante, created CityFeast 12 years ago to give back to Joslin Diabetes Center, which has provided her son with life-saving care since his diagnosis on his 1st birthday.
Over the years, CityFeast has raised nearly $300,000 for Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Fund.
Tickets are priced at $150 each, of which $100 is tax deductible, and can be purchased at: http://www.joslin.org/cityfeast. Due to high demand, reservations are limited, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. The event will be held on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 6:00 PM
