This annual festival is a free family event created to celebrate Irish customs and traditions. The event brings together the local community by providing live entertainment, food and various activities.
At the event, BBS, Inc. volunteers mingled with patrons while selling tickets for their charity raffle and collected additional donations for Operation Smile.

The list of participants includes: Savin Hill Bar and Grill, The Blarney Stone, Blasi’s Cafe, dbar, McKenna’s Café, Scoops and Venezia Waterfront Restaurant. Each restaurant donated a gift certificate for the raffle, which benefited Operation Smile. The winner of the raffle received all seven of the donations, a value of almost three hundred dollars!
In addition to the donated gift certificates, one local member of the community volunteered her time and services for free face painting, a value of $250.00.
“The event this past Sunday at the Irish Heritage Festival was a huge success! We are so thankful to each of the seven local restaurants that participated in the event by donating gift certificates for the raffle winner. The McHugh family of Weymouth, MA was the lucky recipient of all seven of the gift certificates,” exclaimed one BBS Manager.
BBS, Inc. was able to raise a total of $695.00 for Operation Smile and gathered almost $300.00 in donated gift certificates for their raffle. Each year the company has a fund raising goal of $2000.00 for Operation Smile, after this last event they have surpassed that goal!
In response to being asked about their fundraising goal, one member of the HR team stated, “It is so exciting for us to have not only reached our goal before the years end but we have now beat it! This last event was such a great turnout and was so much fun so we would like to thank everyone that came out and participated! There are certainly more charity events in the making for the remainder of the year so stay tuned to see what we have planned.”

About Operation Smile
Operation Smile (http://www.operationsmile.org/) began in 1982 with Dr. Bill Magee and his wife Kathy. After venturing to the Philippines with a group of medical volunteers to surgically heal children’s cleft lips and palettes, Bill and Kathy made it their life mission to raise funds, gather volunteers and spread awareness to help children that suffer from this condition world-wide.
At Operation Smile, medical volunteers provide their surgical services to children in need completely free of charge. For each surgery it only costs as little as two hundred and forty dollars per surgery. As a world-wide charitable organization, Operation smile is dedicated to raising awareness of this life threatening condition and to provide lasting solutions one child at a time.
Currently volunteering in over 60 countries, the organization has demonstrated the powerful effect of combining resources, passion, and thousands of volunteers with the will to make a difference. For more information about Operation Smile visit: www.operationsmile.org.
