Over 1,000 high school and college kids made the scene at Make Noise to Save a Life, a fund-raiser for the Boston-based suicide prevention organization Samaritans. The event at the House of Blues raised $50,000 and featured Joe Bermudez spinning tracks while a slew of VIPs - Sox CEO Larry Lucchino’s wife, Stacey, Debbie DiMasi, better half of former House Speaker Sal DiMasi, former federal judge Nancy Gertner, Samaritans executive director Roberta Hurtig, and WEEI yakker Lou Merloni - hung out upstairs in the Foundation Room. Stacey Lucchino’s son, Davis Ballard, also took a turn DJing.
