Harvest Un-Brunch & Raffle Grand Prize Winner

West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place thanks all our supporters for another successful Harvest Un-Brunch and Raffle.

The drawing for the raffle was on Sunday, November 6th, and we congratulate Kathryn Dunlop, who is this year’s grand prize winner.

Thanks to Chef Courtney Beerman, owner of The Pearl Plates, Kathryn and her family have a tasty gourmet brunch for four to look forward to! In addition, thirteen other supporters won gift cards to favorite local restaurants and businesses.

Your participation in the Harvest Un-Brunch and Raffle helps to fight food insecurity close to home. It also sponsors children’s participation in activities in the Boston area that support their wellbeing and mental health.

Since 1981, WRFORP have served Boston families in need. Thanks for your generosity. Together, we make a difference!

We loved getting Distracted…

West Roxbury Friends of Rosies Place wants to give a big thank you to our many long-time and new supporters who joined us on Monday evening at Distraction Brewing Co. for a fun time and a very successful fundraiser for Rosie’s Place and the Roslindale Food Pantry.  

Special thanks to Distraction for hosting the event. This was our first time teaming up with Distraction, and the success of the evening was due in large part to their involvement.

After quenching their thirst with a brew, hungry supporters satisfied their appetite with dinner from Wanderlust Food Truck. A delicious Monday evening combination! 

The multi-generational crowd, from babies to octogenarians, added to the festive atmosphere. 

Thanks to everyone for their generosity and participation in the fundraiser’s raffle. 

Lucky winners took home gift cards donated by local businesses—Green T Coffee Shop, Sophia’s Grotto, The Square Root, Kissed, and Birch St. House & Garden—to name just a few.

Thanks to your participation, we are able to help our neighbors struggling with food insecurity. 

We did it! Our $40K for 40 Years campaign brought in over $45,000 in 2021

Not many things went better than expected in 2021, but thanks to your generosity, we’re happy to share with you that West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place’s $40K for 40 Years Anniversary Campaign beat all expectations!

We set a challenging goal to raise $40,000 to help local organizations that serve food insecure individuals and families. With your help, we raised over $45,000 and gave it all away!

At a time when everything seems hard, it’s comforting to know that we’re part of a caring community that made things better for others. Thank you for all you do to make our community, our city, our world a better place.

Wishing you the very best in 2022,

WRFORP Board Members

Thanks to all who came to our Block Party on September 18th

Our thanks to everyone who turned out for our Thank You Block Party on Saturday, September 18, 2021. A lovely time was had by all!

We were so happy to have the opportunity to reconnect in person with longtime and new supporters on Park Street where it all started 40 years ago.

Michael Oliver, Director of Fundraising for Rosie’s Place, came with his pup, Frodo, and shared how they are helping women and hungry families through the challenges of COVID.

And Ruthzee Louijeune, candidate for Boston City Council At-Large, closed out the celebration with us.

Again, THANK YOU for all you have done to support the Boston women, children, and families we serve together. 

We are looking forward to hosting another Virtual Harvest Brunch in November, so be on the lookout for messages from us about great raffle prizes and how to get a ticket.

With gratitude, 
WRFORP Board
