It was a full house at the 2019 North End Christmas Fund Luncheon as hundreds came together for the annual charity event.
Receiving honors this year:
Toni Gilardi Uncle Fred Carangelo Humanitarian Award John Fiumara Private Ernest J. Natale Community Service Award
The committee also honored two longtime supporters who have been very generous in supporting the Christmas Fund luncheon over the years.

The tradition raises thousands of dollars enabling the group to send out over 200 checks to North End seniors, low-income residents and families in need during this Christmas season. State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz and City Councilor Lydia Edwards joined with the committee to celebrate and honor those who serve the community.
The Christmas Fund Committee is led by Robert “Ted” Tomasone, John Romano of the North End Athletic Association and James Luisi of North End Waterfront Health. The committee includes members from local non-profit agencies: North End Athletic Association, North End Against Drugs, Nazzaro Community Center, North End Waterfront Health, North End Seniors, ABCD Head Start Program and North End / West End ABCD Service Center.
For the last several years the luncheon has been held at Filippo’s Ristorante and the committee would like to thank the Frattaroli Family for all of their help and support in making the luncheon a huge success.

The phone call came at the worst possible time, but isn’t that always the case? Christmas was in four days and Angela was pregnant with their first child.

It’s that time of the year again when Earth tilts away from the life-giving sun and creatures big and small seek sanctuary in the warmth of a burrow or hearth. Thoughts bend backwards to the past — sometimes all the way to childhood — as creeping darkness slips over late afternoons, shrouding us in remembrance Read More…
