The Irish Social Club of Boston in West Roxbury will host a special event on Friday, Feb. 7 to benefit a local family.
The event, dubbed "New Year, New Addition" is a fundraiser to benefit the West Roxbury resident Barry Wiener and his 19-year-old son Eddie, who care for Andy and Dan, 13-year-old twin boys who are severely disabled and in need of home alternations in West Roxbury. Andrew is blind and in a wheelchair with severe brain damage and has cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. Dan is legally blind with autism and also has a brain injury less severe than Andrew’s. He also has a seizure disorder.
Weiner, a Brockton native, who has lived in West Roxbury for 13 years, has also set up a GoFundMe.com page to help raise money to support his cause.
Doors for the event this Friday open at 7 p.m. Admission is $20. The event will feature a light buffet and music by DJ Kevin O'Connell. For more information, call Tim DiAngelis of Lawn Care Plus at 617-592-9185 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
