The Ed Wash Foundation, in memory of the fallen Boston firefighter and Watertown native, will host a Spring Fundraiser on March 24 featuring music, food and raffles. 

The event will be held on March 24, 2017 from 7 p.m.-midnight at the American Legion Post 440, 295 California St., Newton. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at door Purchase tickets at bit.ly/March32417

Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Boston rock band Fenian Sons.

Proceeds from the event will be used for the Smile-On Grant program that provides grant money to teachers, coaches, parents and specialists who help children in school and sports, according to the organizers.

“Please help us by bringing a book for our book drive. Imagine a school without a library, or a home with no books to read when you get home from school. Sadly, many Boston Public Schools have no libraries and many of the students don’t have books at home. Please help us bring books into the classroom and into the homes of elementary aged children,” the event announcement said.

Every ticket purchased gives you a chance to win our door prize. Extra tickets will be entered into the raffle for each book you bring.

Tickets may also be purchased by mailing a check (made out to the Ed Walsh Foundation) to:
