Milk and Bookies with Rescue & Carly

April 14, 2018 @ 2:00pm - 3:00pm


Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel

An inspiring afternoon story time and book signing event from the authors of Rescue and Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship. Based on a real-life partnership, this new children’s picture book is a heartening story of the love and teamwork between a girl and her Service Dog, and will be released in April just ahead of the fifth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Co-authors Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing who both lost legs as result, along with NEADS Service Dog Rescue will read Rescue and Jessica to guests and sign purchased copies of the book*. NEADS will be in attendance to further educate about its work and the importance of service dogs. Carly Copley, Fairmont Copley Plaza’s beloved canine ambassador and fellow black lab, will also be present to meet the crowd. A selection of sweet treats (cookies, of course!) and beverages (milk, coffee, tea, lemonade) will be served.

Tickets are $10 donation per adult and $5 donation per child. 100% percent of these proceeds will be donated to NEADS to support its mission and services.

Space is limited, and we highly recommend reserving your tickets today.
