Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers is giving back, and you can help. The first-ever “Rock-a-thon,” a fund-raiser to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital, starts Friday, June 14, at Thos. Moser’s showroom, 19 Arlington Street. Boston, with an opening reception from 5-8:30 p.m. The event continues through Sunday featuring a demonstration by Warren Shaw, a Thos. Moser craftsman for more than 20 years, who, as a 6-year-old child, had a hole in his heart repaired by the outstanding surgeons at Children’s. Shaw will meticulously construct a new Thos. Moser signature piece — the New Gloucester Rocker (pictured above) — in front of onlookers. A silent auction, which includes donated items such as event tickets, artwork, and restaurant gift certificates, will take place and local author Frances Driscoll will debut and sign copies of her new children’s book, The Swan Boat Ride, all to benefit Children’s.
Shaw’s finished rocker, which all who contribute to the cause can sign, will be donated to The Devon Nicole House, a foundation that provides families a place to stay to be near their children during their stay at the hospital. More information is at thosmoser.com.
