I humbly invite you to consider THE WARD 8 GESTURE as a memorial to the victims of the Boston Marathon Tragedy and as a charitable movement to aid the victims' families with these unwelcome arrangements and to provide ongoing support for the families, and all who were affected by this act of hatred.

Krystal Campbell, one of the women killed in the blasts, was a local sister-in-arms in the Boston hospitality community, and a close friend in our extended family. Her death was the catalyst for me to rally this effort, but obviously this event affects many people and we're taking this opportunity to gather my friends in hospitality to do whatever we can to help out.

The intentions of the Ward 8 Gesture are outlined here:

"If even a few hours of a service are set-aside so that the bar women & barmen can feature Ward 8s, a historic Boston cocktail, take a donation, and remember the innocent women, children, and Officer of the Peace that were taken from us during these terrifying situation and extend our condolences to their loving families."

We're calling our friends in hospitality to action from bartenders, bars & restaurants, brands, and industry folks all over and the effort is being organized as we speak. We'll be running this event starting on Mayday and the effort will extend through the month's end.


If you wish to donate money directly to this effort. You can do so using this page. The page will be available through Midnight on June 1, 2013. At that time, the tally will be taken and the monies will be donated to USBG Boston.
