Boston, Mass. – November 29, 2016 – The Ritz-Carlton, Boston is again pleased to support Community Servings’ seasonal Pie in the Sky benefit by donating dozens of freshly baked pies, just in time for Thanksgiving, to this Boston-based, non-profit organization that is making a difference in the lives of those living with life-threatening illnesses. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving Day dinner at your home, or if you’re tasked to bring dessert for family and friends, please consider purchasing pies for your upcoming holiday meal in an effort to support Community Servings.
More than a fundraiser, Pie in the Sky’s primary goal is to improve the well-being of the greater-Boston community all while simultaneously spreading public awareness about the mission of Community Servings – a Massachusetts-based free home delivery service providing meals and nutritional programs to those struggling with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses.
Established in 1993, Pie in the Sky accepts donations from Boston’s top restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and hotels to provide thousands of pies that more than 700 volunteers then sell to their family, friends and colleagues. Each pie costs $30.00, which provides a week's worth of nutritious, home-delivered meals to a patron in need. For the fifth consecutive year, The Ritz-Carlton, Boston is delighted to take part in this popular fundraiser, where this year, Executive Chef Frank Kassner is baking and donating thirty pumpkin pies.
Community Servings’ annual Pie in the Sky benefit perfectly aligns with The Ritz-Carlton brand-wide Community Footprints initiative, which is a localized corporate social responsibility program that works to ensure that all Ritz-Carlton hotels and the Ladies and Gentlemen who work there support their local communities and environments. By mobilizing the hotel’s resources and skill-based volunteer efforts, The Ritz-Carlton, Boston strives to make a difference through child well-being; hunger and poverty relief; and environmental responsibility.
