The Boston chapter of Gay for Good (G4G) is celebrating five years of volunteer work in the Boston community on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 5PM at the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill in the Back Bay (near Arlington T stop).
RSVP: G4G Boston Anniversary Party
This is a great opportunity for anyone who may be making resolutions for the new year to “pay it forward” or give back to the community. The G4G chapter is also wonderful if you are new to the area and/or are looking to make new friends. At the event you will have a chance to meet other active and new members and learn more about upcoming volunteer projects in 2015.
G4G will have a collection for Rosie’s Place; bring one of any of the following:
- Adult hats, gloves, or scarves
- Toiletries (unopened – travel or full size)
- Canned goods (tuna, peanut butter, beans)
- Coffee mugs
Complimentary appetizers, soft drinks, and coffee will be served from the menu of Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake. Cash bar for other beverages.
Broadway Bares, is an unrivaled evening of sexy striptease that is part burlesque and part razzle-dazzle with all proceeds going to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. This is the event’s 25th anniversary edition and tickets are now on sale for the two shows on Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 9:30 pm and Midnight. Get’em while they last these sell out fast. They make for a great holiday gift (hint hint).

The annual Toys for Joys party was a great success. This year the event moved to accommodate a larger crowd and was hosted at the Revere Hotel’s Space 57 in Bay Village. The Toys for Joys party has no long speeches and you are not repeatedly asked to ‘open your check book one more time.’ It is a fresh take on fundraising that focuses on socializing and bringing our community together, making it accessible all – not just people able to write large checks. If you missed the event, I hope to see you there in 2015. Learn more about T4J here.
Community Servings Pie Day is today. The purpose of this day is to host events and raise awareness that Pie in the Sky 2014 season is now in full swing and you are encouraged to buy one of Community Servings’ Pies in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
In honor of Pie Day, you can grab a delicious slice of pie and a cup of coffee at the Prudential Center from 11 – 1PM. Follow @communityserv on Twitter, and all day they will be Tweeting trivia and photos. Those who respond to their Tweets and use #pieinthesky can win a pie.
If you are unfamiliar with Community Servings, I’d encourage you to check out their website. It has information about how you can order, donate and or help them sell their delicious pies, pieinthesky.org/event/pies.

It was inevitable I suppose, but looking to capitalize on the social media success of this summer’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, U.K. based Check One Two has created the “Crotch Grab Challenge” to raise awareness about testicular cancer and to encourage men to regularly examine themselves.
Recently Hugh Jackman decided to lend a hand (so to speak) to support the cause and tweeted out the above photo signalling his acceptance of the challenge. He then nominated Niel Patrick Harris, Michael Strahan and Ricky Gervais.
