On January 29, Ida Candreva and her friends were able to enjoy a wonderful evening watching the Celtics play at TD Garden courtesy tickets donated to East Boston Main Streets’ Taste of Eastie live auction by Walter Yourawski, owner of the East Boston Diamond and Gold Exchange.
The experience of the evening was tremendously enhanced by a limo ride to and from the Garden, a visit to the scoreboard with Ed Palladino, and the opportunity to meet the players and the cheerleaders, all courtesy the generosity of Joe Ruggiero from the Ruggiero Family Memorial Home.
Joe, who has become somewhat of a fixture at the Taste of Eastie continued his ongoing support of East Boston’s non-profit community by serving once again as the energetic, well-loved auctioneer at the Taste – and encouraging bidding by adding all kinds of generous incentives to the process.
East Boston Main Streets would like to thank all the restaurants who participated in the Taste of Eastie, all our guests and supporters, and particularly Joe Ruggiero and Walter Yourawski.
