An evening of fun and music to benefit the James P. “Jimmy” Cawley Scholarship
at UMass Boston

On Saturday February 29, 2020 from 7pm to 10:30pm at Florian Hall, 55 Hallett St. Dorchester, MA an event to benefit the Jimmy Cawley Scholarship at UMass Boston will feature a performance by the Boston ILL Harmonic (“Boston’s most loveable chamber rock ensemble”) performing music by the Beatles, followed by live band Beatles karaoke. The band has played similar evenings at the City Winery, the Lizard Lounge, and other venues to great acclaim.

The Jimmy Cawley Scholarship was created in memory of a much loved son of Dorchester whose life was sadly shortened by cancer. An active political volunteer and advocate for people with disabilities in his job at WORK Inc., Jimmy’s scholarship is set up to benefit a student from Dorchester who is majoring in political science.

The first scholarship was awarded in 2017 to an outstanding recipient, Dorchester resident Renata Teodoro.

General admission is $10 at the door. Raffle prizes, hors d’ouevres and cash bar, and a cash drawing will be held. For more information or to purchase tickets for the cash drawing, please contact Elisa Birdseye at jimmyscholarship@gmail.com.
