State Rep. Liz Malia (D-11th Suffolk) and District 6 City Councilor Matt O’Malley would like to thank the generous community partners who made the 24th Annual South Street Summer Hotdog Nights possible and successful. The community partners included Roche Bros., Fernandez Spa, Il Panino Cafe & Grill, Read Boston, Boston Police Department’s District E-13 Community Service officers, Boston Tenant Coalition, many loyal volunteers like Bette Jo Green and Jo Ann Whitehead, summer interns, and the managers, residents and neighbors of the Boston Housing Authority’s South Street Family Development. The cookouts were held at 5:30 pm every Tuesday (weather permitting) June through August. The event builds community by bringing residents, neighbors, and public safety officials together, and helps to provide a safe and healthy space for all attendees to interact one hot dog at a time.
