On Tuesday, January 8th, the Hampshire House presented a check for $10,000 to the Jimmy Fund.
The money was raised through our Cheers for Children charity. Most of it was raised the night of our Hampshire House Anniversary event on November 8th 2012. This event we held in celebration of 30 years since the airing of the first episode of “Cheers.” It also celebrated 101 years of the Thayer Mansion at 84 Beacon Street, 33 years of Cheers for Children fundraising activity, 43 years since the opening of the Bull & Finch Pub (now known as Cheers), 43 years of ownership by Thomas A. Kershaw of the Hampshire House Corporation, 15 years since the opening of 75 Chestnut, and the opening of our newest location, 75 on Liberty Wharf.
