Tresca Suits Up For Team Trevor

Here's a rare kind of fundraiser: one that essentially costs you nothing. On Tuesday, October 29, from 6 PM to 8 PM, North End Italian Tresca will host a benefit for Team Trevor, a nonprofit dedicated to funding research and treatment for cystic fibrosis. For a $25 donation, guests are treated to copious passed hors d'oeuvres, raffle prizes and an auction featuring Red Sox and New England Patriots' memorabilia, among other covetable treasures. But every attendee will also receive a $25 gift certificate for a future visit at Tresca - so basically, you just earned back your donation in crespelle and capesante (shown). Seems like a fair trade. The organization's eponymous 14-year-old Trevor will even be on hand to serve as a "celebrity chef," and he'll be joined by Jennifer Penton, star of the locally lensed reality cop show Boston's Finest - its season-two premiere is next month (617-742-8240).
