Spring fundraisers in Boston

The Taste of the South End
Last month I wrote about the AIDS Action Committee fundraiser, Taste of the South End. This is one of my favorite fundraisers, and I try to attend it every year.

I was surprised when a friend sent me this video from YouTube. At the end your's truly makes an appearance. True to form, I'm shoving food down my throat. However the memories of the shrimp ceviche tacos from 28 degrees are happy ones so I don't mind.

The Men's Event
This Saturday, I will be joined by friends and nearly 1,500 Gay men as we all descend upon the Marriott Copley to attend the Fenway Health Center's annual black-tie extravaganza, otherwise known as The Men's Event.

If you don't have plans as yet - it is a great time and money goes to a very worthwhile organization. You can link to the Fenway homepage and still buy tickets if you like.
