Car czar Ernie Boch Jr. threw a fund-raiser for his nonprofit Music Drives Us on Sunday, along with his significant other, Enza Sambataro, at his Ferrari-Maserati dealership on the Automile in Norwood. Nibbles were prepared by celebrity chefs including Ming Tsai and Tony Ambrose. Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer presented Boch with a $10,000 check from his fledgling organic coffee company, Rockin’ & Roastin’. Other guests included “Person of Interest” actor Kevin Chapman, rocker James Montgomery, Mittcom Advertising execs Bruce Mittman and Glenn Lucas, former Patriots QB Steve Grogan, and PR gal Peggy Rose. The event raised $225,000. Music Drives Us gives grants for music programs for people in need. Boch, a graduate of Berklee College of Music, plays guitar in the band he founded, Ernie and the Automatics.
