Good Taste for a Good Cause in Boston

Men putting on aprons is always a good thing, but Codman Square Health Center and Dorchester House Multi-Service Center took matters a step further when they launched a Men of Boston Cook event to raise money for women’s health services. Over 1000 people attended the event, held under a tent at the Codman Square Health Center, and were served by Boston luminaries such as Governor Deval Patrick, Mayor Tom Menino, Citizens Bank Chairman Larry Fish, former Gov. Mike Dukakis, Speaker of the House Sal DiMasi, author Dennis Lehane (Mystic River), and other media, corporate and political personalities. The event raised a whopping $250,000 for women’s health services.
