Celebrities, foodies, and beautiful Bostonites took over the Castle at the Park Plaza on Saturday evening for the Room to Grow Fall Gala, a benefit celebrating five years of Room to Grow’s continued success in “enriching the lives of babies born into poverty.” Co-chairs Mary Richardson formerly of WCVB-TV’s Chronicle and Patrick Canning of KPMG led the event that honored five outstanding Room to Grow supporters and featured the radiant Room to Grow board member Uma Thurman who spoke about her involvement with the organization.

The Met Back Bay created gargantuan meatball sliders with red sauce aioli. Supposedly, some arugula was tucked between the meat and the bun but we didn’t notice much else besides tasty beef.
MooBella for dessert, but one can’t go wrong with sweets from L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates, which had us leaving on a (sugar) high note. The Gala was a wonderful event with extraordinary people all for an excellent local cause. Keep up the much-needed work in our community, for we have much more Room to Grow!
