5th Annual CityFeast: Dining Out to Conquer Diabetes

Join several North End restaurants for dinner on January 31 at the 5th Annual CityFeast and help benefit the Joslin Diabetes Center.

Six North End restaurants, including Terramia, Antico Forno, Lucca, Prezza, Tresca and Taranta, will host special five-course dinners with wine pairings. Billy Costa of KISS 108 FM and NECN’s “TV Diner” will also make a special appearance. The dinners will be held on Sunday, January 31, 2010, from 6pm-9pm.

Cost: $150 per person (which includes tax and gratuity and $100 of the ticket price is tax-deductible). Proceeds benefit Joslin’s High Hopes Fund, which supports Joslin’s efforts to improve the lives of people with diabetes—young and old—and to prevent and cure the disease.

The Joslin Diabetes Center is the world's preeminent diabetes research and clinical care organization. Joslin is dedicated to ensuring people with diabetes live long, healthy lives and offers real hope and progress toward diabetes prevention and a cure for the disease. Founded in 1898 by Elliott P. Joslin, M.D., Joslin is an independent nonprofit institution affiliated with Harvard Medical School.

It is not all just about drinking and eating. We should be responsible citizens as well.
