The Start of Something Good…
Fundraisers at the Dockside Restaurants started back at the Centre Street Malden location in 1995. A local boy Jacob was in need of a second life-saving liver transplant. A fundraiser was hosted in conjunction with the New England Patriot Cheerleaders on a Monday Night Football Game and raised over $7,000 for his operation. Regular fundraisers were hosted thereafter.
…and it continues!
Fundraisers now take place at all four locations on a regular basis. The variety of organizations range from local non-profits, to sports teams and school groups, to churches and even dance troupes. Many participants raising money for various charitable causes and events such as the Avon Breast Cancer Walk or Jimmy Fund/Boston Marathon Group also choose to host a ‘Dine for Dollars’ night at the restaurant.
