Please Join Us for Our ... 5TH ANNUAL HALLOWEEN PARTY FUNDRAISER It is a special fundraiser that my human companion is going to at- tend at the Knights of Columbus at 545 Medford Street, Charlestown, MA next to the fire station on Sat- urday, October, 27, 2012 from 7:00-11:00 pm. It is being held in memory of my beloved friend Robert Sorrentino, who at the age of four lost his battle with cancer. The name of the fundraiser is "Sorrentino Stompers" because Robert loved the characters from Toy Story. A little boy who had so much to offer in life, his memory has never left our hearts nor my heart or mind since the moment he left us. He will always be remembered as a special gift to us. I can't begin to ex- plain the effect this one child, has had on me. I try to un- derstand the concept of a small child having to lose his life to this deadly disease. We continue each year to keep his memory alive and to donate all proceeds to the Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund was founded in 1948 and since then has supported the fight against cancer in children and adults at Boston's Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, helping raise the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. your support will help fund cancer research and treatment programs. Anyone that is interested to attend is welcome. There will be music, appetizers and an opportunity draw- ing. Costumes are optional but encouraged. Tickets Will be sold at the door. Your support is greatly appreciated and it is ALL for a good cause. Giving support to others is a wonderful feeling! That's all for now.

A percentage of the proceeds will go to the Massachusetts Restaurant Association's Educational Foun- dation, which is focused on developing current and up-coming food and beverage professionals in Massachusetts, making a serious impact on the future of the Boston .hospitality scene. Lucia Ristorante has been owned by the Frattaroli family since its opening in the heart of the North End in 1977, when they became one of the first restaurants to bring true Italian cooking to the neighborhood. They have continuously combined tradi- tional Italian-American favorites with dar- ing innovations from Abruzzo, Italy (the Frattaroli's home), many times long before they became culturally acceptable in America. They have always been known to provide an intimate atmosphere for fami- lies and friends, which keep not just tour- ists, but many locals, returning year after year, decade after decade. Now, the Frattaroli family is welcoming all their customers -- families and friends from near and far -- back to the restaurant for a month long celebration, giving them an- other chance to experience the dishes that began their legacy and offering the one time chance to guests who never had the oppor- tunity to do so for the first time.
