What do hockey, good food, and juvenile diabetes have in common? Carlisle residents Nancy and Tony DiRomualdo, Cecile and Lee Sandwen, Peg Opolski, Michelle and Jon Sobin, and Laurie and Bill Diercks found out on February 9 when they attended the first annual CityFeast fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

Planned by restaurant owner Carla Gomes, whose own son has juvenile diabetes, the event featured a five-course dinner with wine at one of six North End restaurants - AnticoForno, Terramia, Artu's, Bricco, Lucca, and Sage. Defenseman Nick Boynton of the Boston Bruins, who has juvenile (Type I) diabetes, made the rounds and signed autographs for his many fans, including Christian DiRomualdo, age 11, and Mia Sobin, age 8, who suffer from the disease. Boynton also signed a Bruins jersey to be entered in the CEF/CSA Auction to support the Carlisle School. It was an excellent evening, and all proceeds will support the JDRF, the leading charity for Type I diabetes research.
