This Wednesday, October 23rd from 7:30-9:30pm we’ll be hosting our dear friends and South Boston neighbors from the Laboure Center for a festive Fall Get Together. Tickets are $20 and include 2 pints of Harpoon beer and snacks. There is no better way to celebrate all the wonderful ways Laboure helps our community than to come down, enjoy your favorite fall beer and hear how you can get involved!
In preparation of the event, we sat down with Judy Swanson, Development & Volunteer Coordinator of the Laboure Center and asked her about the center and the great work they do.
What is the Laboure Center and what services do you offer?
Laboure is a social service agency providing health, education and social services to over 3000 clients annually. We are a service site of Catholic Charities-serving people of all faiths that are in need. We have been part of the community since 1906.
We offer: Early Childhood services, mentoring for teens, tutoring for middle school students, counseling services, public health visits to elderly, and job training for nurse assistant /home health aide certification.
Can you tell us about your mentoring program?
Our mentoring program matches at risk youth with caring adults for a one year period. Each mentor is matched with a youth that has similar interests and each mentor agrees to meet monthly with the youth.
We are looking forward to hosting you in our Beer Hall! Can you tell us what to expect at the event?
We expect to have guests that are both young and old (currently I have about 60 preregistered) but expect most to be at the door. We hope for those that are new to interest them in volunteering or attending events at Laboure!
How do I buy tickets?
They can buy tickets ahead at www.ccab.org/events or buy them at the door the evening of the event.
After your event at Harpoon, what else do you have coming up?
After our event we have Christmas House Tour and we will have save the date cards to distribute and opportunities for volunteering at that event.
Anything else you’d like to share?
What else to share??- We LOVE Harpoon!
The feeling is mutual! We hope you can join us on Wednesday to raise a pint to this great organization!
