It’s Dec. 11. We’re in the thick of things now!
From giving thanks to giving presents, folks are in the middle of a month-long season that does the heart good.
Charitable giving goes into high gear over the holidays, too. Whether we drop coins in a red Salvation Army kettle or write a check to a pet cause before the tax year ends, it feels good to be kind.
The University of Massachusetts Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center must be feeling like a million bucks. Their Winter Ball at Mechanics Hall Dec. 2 outdid itself this year, passing the $1 million mark in a night of dancing, dining and donating.
