So many laughs and memories, all for an amazing cause. Bring all your friends, bring a date or best yet, come solo because I can promise you there will be plenty of good looking singles here!

Tickets are only $30 each or $250 for 10 (which automatically reserves you a table - so bring all your friends!!) 

TICKETS INCLUDE:
1. Automatic entry into the door prize raffle
2. Appetizers & full dinner buffet 
3. Access to purchase prize raffles (we had over 50 baskets last year!), 50/50 raffles & card game raffles

5. Dancing and music before the comedy show

You will be able to purchase tickets at the door the night of if the event does not sell out ahead of time. We sold out last year, so be careful!

My name is Elaina so please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, comments, a funny joke, whatever you need: Email: erepucci22@gmail.com Phone: 781-588-2193 

What cause are you donating to? Most of the money raised at this event will be donated directly to the research of pediatric brain tumors at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. The balance of the proceeds will be used to purchase gifts for brain cancer patients being cared for at the hospital.

Why do we do it? The passion behind this cause stems from a family member’s diagnosis of brain cancer. In May 2011 one of our family members was diagnosed with medulloblastoma which is a brain tumor prevalent in children. The name of the tumor led to the “Make a Blast against Brain Cancer Fundraiser” name. Although he is no longer with us here we know he is looking down from heaven proudly as we continue to do all we can for this cause in his memory.

Just this year many new brain cancer treatments have been approved. The Floating Hospital jumped right on the opportunity to treat their patients with the most ground breaking research out there. This hospital is a beacon of hope for so many families and every donation is so important and deeply appreciated.   

Who are we? We are a fun, loving, passionate family! The planning team consists of our aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, sisters, brothers and friends.

Far Away

In Caryl Churchill's chilling drama, young Joan wakes in the night while staying with her aunt and uncle in the country and sees the stuff of nightmares. Or does she? How much does she really understand of what she sees? Years later, Joan is a fighter in a resistance movement - where the whole world is at war with itself. The cats have come in on the side of the French and the Bolivians have weaponized gravity. Permeated with paranoia and fear, Far Away shows us a funhouse mirror reflection of our world, a dystopian society where unspeakable horrors take place just offstage and the moral compass is shattered. By turns lyrical and prosaic, terrifying and shot through with a dark glinting humor, this fable of a society (and a planet) turning on itself is the work master playwright and political thinker at her best.

Directed by Meg Taintor

Featuring: Becca A. Lewis, Bob Mussett, and Lorna Nogueira
