Join BMS tonight and support Toys For Tots!
Looking for something to do tonight? Join BMS at Hennessy’s Hooley House tonight and kick of the holiday season by supporting a great cause. We’re delighted to be hosting our first annual holiday concert benefiting the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation with music from Cassavettes, Shadwell, Three Day Threshold and Taste.
All proceeds will be donated to the national Marine Toys for Tots Foundation benefiting needy children in the Greater Boston area this holiday season. Tickets for the 21+ show are $10 or $5 with an unwrapped toy and can be purchased at the door. Live Nation and Straight Stitch Custom Embroidery & Silkscreen will co-sponsor the benefit concert. Hennessy’s Hooley House is the upstairs rock club at Hennessy’s on 25 Union Street.
