72andSunny Folks Aim to Raise $10K Worth of Dinner/Drinks for Boston 1st Responders

A few folks from Cali-based 72andSunny led by strategist Mike Jacobson are trying to show their support and give something back to some of Boston’s finest who first responded to last week’s marathon bombings with an effort called “This One’s On Us.”

With the help of online fundraising site gofundme, the 72 crew tells us, “We’re partnering with EatBoston to give gift cards from Boston’s restaurants and bars to the men and women who put their lives on the line for the city they love, and to help us all feel safe again.” The monetary goal is $10,000 with all proceeds going to those who responded and as of now, a few hundred dollars have been raised in two days. If you’d care to donate and help out, go here for more info.
