Support Community Servings with LifeSavor on April 26, 2018

Community Servings is one of the nonprofits in Boston I love supporting .They prepare nutritious meals for the homebound and critically ill, each meal catered to each patient's condition.
Each year, they fold a big fundraising event called LifeSavor, which starts with a festive gala reception at The Langham Hotel.

Guests can sign up either for the reception alone or for a multi-course dinner. After the reception, they will be transported to one of the participating restaurants for dinner and after the dinner they'll be transported back to The Langham for a dessert after party.
This year's participating restaurants include Bondir, Craigie on Main, Bar Mezzana, Toro, Oleana, Mistral, and many more. See here for a full list.

There's plenty of food at the reception itself, provided by The Langham ...

Domingo Martin Barreres from Bogie's Place has been participating in the past two years, making visually striking cocktails like this one last year that changes color from blue to light purple.

LifeSavor's gala reception is a night where Bostonians get decked out in cocktail attire, enjoy live music, good food, and plenty to drink all for a great cause. In addition to the hot food stations, there's a buffet of cheese and salads near the entrance.

You can contribute further to the organization at the reception. There are plenty of items in the silent auctions from cooking classes, travel packages, Red Sox packages, and more. There are also the balloon pop. You buy a ticket to pop a balloon, which is filled with a number linked to different prizes. I tried one last year and got a gift card to a perfumerie. All proceeds go to Community Servings.
