April 16 Milton Concert Aids Jimmy Fund

Five years ago Milton resident and Cambridge Police Lieutenant Pauline Wells teamed up with several friends to host a St. Patrick’s concert to benefit the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber cancer Institute.
Each year, sold out crowds have come to Milton High School Auditorium to attend this splendid event, known today as “A Celtic Crossing”. This performance has caught the attention of many, mainly because of the bright voice of Pauline Wells, who founded this effort after losing a second parent to cancer in 2002.
Her efforts have raised thousands for Dana Farber. In addition she has used her singing talent and the relationship she has developed with many musicians, especially members of the band DEVRI led by Donegal native and Braintree resident Declan Houton to bring awareness and money to several worthy charities.
Dozens of musicians and dancers have taken part in this show including international artist Finbar Furey and local comedian Jimmy Tingle.
Her efforts have also caught the eye to the legendary Irish Tenor, Dr. Ronan Tynan— so much so that Wells performed as a special guest with Tynan during his March 27th show in Boston— on of his first since moving to Boston last year.
On Saturday, April 16, 2010, the fifth production of “A Celtic Crossing” will return to the Milton High School Auditorium. This year’s show once again promises to highlight the Boston Police Gaelic Column, the Odwyer School of Irish dance and several musical guests. This year we bring you back to our beginning five years ago, with an inspirational lineup of traditional classics as well as several new numbers. Tickets are $25 and may be obtained by calling 617-696-7172 or e-mailing Pauline@paulinewells.com
All proceeds to benefit the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber. For more information see paulinewells.com.
