Chef Turano’s Annual Holiday Fundraiser

I am hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Hematology/Oncology family resource program at Boston Children’s Hospital because I want every kid to have the best care possible. The One Mission Resource Room is a center that helps provide services to over 45 families whose children are being treated at the Children’s Hospital Boston Oncology and Hematology Center by offering a space for patients and families to relax and connect with others going through a similar experience. Funded through donations from area businesses and families, The One Mission Resource Room is staffed by a patient and family educator who can help patients and families learn about their medical treatment. Whether the donated money be used for a morning coffee at the local Dunkin Donuts, or towards purchasing a generic American Express donation that can be used towards gas, or parking (daily routines that are often overlooked), each donation will help parents regain a sense of normalcy in their lives.

 “I can’t emphasize how much The One Mission Resource Room helped my family and I when we were going through this difficult time. It’s because of their team and services that we were able to maintain a sense of normalcy and routine. This December I am asking you to join me in raising money for The Resource Room, and in doing so, helping to put the cheer back in the holidays for these families.”

As a thank you, I would like to invite each one of you in to my restaurant. Simply print out your donation confirmation and bring it into Cook so that we can give you a gift card (of up to $20 value) in return.

Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
Paul Turano
