Cocktails for a Cause in Boston June 27

Bostonians never need an excuse to raise a glass, but this one is particularly good: Boston Scholars, a non-profit that provides financial aid, mentoring, and tutoring to at-risk Boston high school students, is celebrating the fact that 100% of their first class of students (who entered the program five years ago) have been accepted to college!

Being accepted to college is something most students, parents, and well wishers would celebrate. In this case, these students have overcome some daunting odds.

So. Prepare to celebrate, have a little fun, and perhaps network this Friday evening at The Place. (Where, you say? THE place. Duh!) Get your ticket online for $20, or at the door for $25.

When: Friday, June 27 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM
Where: The Place
Why: It's college time, baby!
Cost: $20 to $25

Sip a little of this delicious beverage or any other cocktail of your choice. Hey, it's a celebration!
