You may have noticed that this space has been a bit quiet of late. It’s not for lack of things to talk about, issues to sound off on, or news to share. It’s that time of year again – fundraising season. Sometimes it feels like Santa’s Workshop as Christmas Eve nears – staff and volunteers are working furiously as our 7th Annual Dinner and Fundraiser, scheduled for November 6th, draws closer.

It’s never easy to ask for money, but the services that MITSS is able to offer and the number of people that we are able to help are entirely dependent on our doing just that. Times are difficult for everyone this year, but every little bit helps, and we really need your support.

Join us for our 7th Annual Dinner on Thursday, November 6th, 2008, at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, from 5:30 to 10 pm. It’s going to be a great event as we feature Paul Levy, President and CEO of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Margaret Murphy, a member of the WHO’s World Alliance for Patient Safety and a mother whose son died due to a medical error, as our keynote speakers. The incomparable Billy Costa of NECN and KISS 108 will be our emcee and preside over a fabulous live auction. For tickets, call Winnie Tobin at (617) 232-0090, e-mail at, or click here.

Another way to help MITSS is to participate in our 2008 Online Auction. We are going live on Monday, October 20th and will be taking bids through November 3rd. Click here to preview the fantastic items that our wonderful Planning Committee has assembled. Check back often as our catalog will be updated when donations come in. Win an exciting prize while supporting the work of MITSS!!!

We hope to see you on November 6th. Best of luck with your auction bids!
