Give Back This Fall

Share This

Fall brings some of the best seasonal activities.

Sure, you can go to the beach or drink on the roof in the summertime, but in the fall in New England, there’s a staggering amount of fun to be had. Go apple picking, go pumpkin picking, go ‘leaf peeping’ (this term makes me uncomfortable), build a fire, have some cider….

But there’s also a heightened sense of charity during the colder months. There are many ways to give back to the community this fall  – here are some ways you can get involved:

Pie In The Sky: Every November since 1993, hot spots around the city (like the Prudential center mall, the Hancock towers, etc) sell pies donated by Boston restaurants, hotels, bakeries, and caterers. Each pie costs $25 and the proceeds go directly the neediest in Boston; those who are critically ill and homebound. The best news? The pies are ready by Thanksgiving so you can share your contributions with your hungry friends and family.

Fall is also a great time for charity banquets and fundraisers:

Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) Champions for Change Gala held November 1, 2012 at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge. The evening, full of fine food & drink, plus a silent & live auction, supports BARCC’s tremendous services around our area.

Hill House Hill-O-Ween 10: Friday, October 26th at the Beehive. The Hill House, a non-profit community center offering programs, summer camp, events and outreach to children and their families in Boston, is holding their largest annual fundraiser featuring cocktails, food, music, live and silent auctions. Tickets are $150 per person.

Horizons Homeless Children: The 14th Annual Women’s Breakfast will be held November 1st at the Westin Copley. The guest of honor will be is Leigh Anne Tuohy, better know as the inspiration behind the book (and Academy Award-winning movie The Blind Side). Tickets available here.
