Charity Events This Month!

There’s no better feeling than helping others while entertaining yourself.  It’s easy and fun to give back to your community while helping those in need at these events in February.  Dance the night away, enjoy a roller skating disco party, ride your bike, or have a cupcake all while improving the lives of others this month!

Valentine’s Day Dance Party – head over to Mantra in Boston on Friday, February 15th for a huge dance party that also benefits a good cause.  The event is from 9 PM until 1 AM and will have cocktails, a complimentary appetizer, raffle prizes, and a specialty menu for the evening.  DJ Dash (voted #1 DJ in new England in 2011) will be spinning tracks all night long!  Tickets are $18 for groups of 5, $20 for couples, and $25 for single tickets.  Proceeds benefit Child Rights And You America INC, a non-profit organization that works toward the basic rights of survival, protection, development, and participation of underprivileged children, especially those of Indian descent.  This organization was founded in 2005 and continues to make a difference in the daily lives of children in Massachusetts.  So get dolled up and get ready to dance the night away all while supporting a wonderful cause!

Funky Rollerdisco Party – You already can’t resist this idea, am I right? I know I always enjoyed taking a spin on my rollerblades, and now you can help sick and injured animals at the same time!  Stop by the Chez Vous Roller Skating Rink in Boston on Saturday, February 23rd from 6PM-8PM for a night that will make you feel like you’re back in the 70’s!  This event benefits Fairy DogParents, a nonprofit organization that helps prevent dogs from being surrendered to shelters because of medical bills.  They provide assistance with food, medical and general wellness needs of qualified dog recipients in Massachusetts and totally rely on donations to do so. Tickets are $10 and there will be a raffle, costume contest, and DJ on hand through the night.  Tickets for this event don’t cost much but your support makes a major difference!

3rd Annual Cupcake Tasting-How can you say no to a free cupcake from one of Boston’s premiere bakeries?  All you have to do is head over to the MGH Blood Donor Center on Thursday, February 21st or Tuesday, February 26th from 8 AM – 5:30 PM and donate blood.  You can head over at any time during the day to donate and then receive your free cupcake.  The process takes about a half hour but can save a life in an emergency. On February 21st, cupcakes will be provided by Curly Cakes, J.P. Licks, and South End Buttery.  On the 26th they will be supplied by Kickass Cupcakes and Sweet Cupcakes.  Get a sugar rush on your lunch break while helping others, does it get any better?

Spin For Boston Children’s Hospital– Start a team and head to Boston Sports Club in Medford or Wellesley on Sunday, February 24th for Spin for Boston Children’s Hospital.  You and your team will peddle your hearts out during this 4 hour, relay style spin fundraiser!  Working out already makes you feel good, so why not help others feel good at the same time?  Register today and help the hospital reach their fundraising goal of $175,000!
