Proceeds from Toques & Tonic will benefit the Barbara Lynch Foundation, which is dedicated to providing leadership in at-risk Boston communities and urban youth with the tools to get Up and Out.


For the upcoming school year we have partnered with incredible organizations: NFTE (Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship) and The Cookbook Project, bringing these creative - and potentially life changing curriculums- to five Boston high schools and four Boston elementary schools.  Our goal is to continue to fund these programs in all Boston Public schools to offer students an inspiring and enriching addition to their studies.  It is our hope that these may not only engage them in new and exciting ways in the classroom but also empower them and provide the skills to lead healthier lives with more opportunity.  Please visit more information on these programs.

This event is for guests 21 years of age and older.
