For the past 5 years I have participated in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, and the past three as Team Captain of a team of 20 walkers. We recently held a Comedy Night Fundraiser at 9 Wallis in Beverly and as with all fundraisers we had a silent auction and raffles. Our team was very fortunate to have received over $1,000 in restaurant Gift Cards thanks to a gentleman named Greg Bates. Greg runs two Facebook pages that rate local restaurants. Within a matter of 24 hours of posting the request for GC’s, Greg had responses from 40 restaurant owners. It was overwhelming. See the attached article regarding this event and for more information on our Team.
