CityFeast Returns to Boston’s North End to Benefit Joslin Diabetes Center January 27

CityFeast, a special dining experience in Boston’s North End, returns on Sunday, January 27th for its thirteenth 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, Terramia Ristorante, and Tresca. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and includes a five-course dinner and wine pairings at the participating North End restaurants.

Carla Agrippino Gomes, owner of Antico Forno and Terramia, created CityFeast in 2005 to give back to Joslin Diabetes Center, which has provided her son, David Gomes, with life-saving care since his diagnosis of type 1 diabetes on his first birthday. Carla credits Joslin with David’s good health over the past 27 years, as well as his interest in the medical field.

Over the years, CityFeast has raised more than $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: 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 27, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
