Thanksgiving at Hyde Park Avenue and West Street, Hyde Park.
Sure, there's already a Santa putting people on his knee at the South Shore Plaza, but some people still remember Thanksgiving comes first:
Boston TweetsGiving holds its Thanksgiving fundraiser on Nov. 24, 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Microsoft New England R&D Center in Cambridge. Proceeds (tickets start at $10), will help Mama Lucy Kamptoni, a Tanzanian woman who invested her income selling chickens to build a school that now serves over 300 children near her home.
"In our day-to-day lives, it's easy to forget all there is to be thankful for, from our health, to our families, to the quality of our educations," said Boston TweetsGiving organizer Gradon Tripp, "The aim of Tweetsgiving Boston is to remind of these things, and, in the spirit of the holidays, to also share our gratitude with those less fortunate."
On turkey day itself, there's the 12th annual Volvo 5K Turkey Trot, which benefits the Central New England Chapter of the MS Society, and which starts at 9 a.m. (with registration at 7:30 a.m.) at 75 N. Beacon St. in Brighton. More info.
