John Barros celebrating his 40th birthday with birthday bash/fund-raising fete starring actor Danny Glover

Mayoral candidate John Barros is throwing himself a birthday bash/fund-raising party to commemorate turning 40 and drum up some campaign cash. Oh, and legendary actor Danny Glover will be on hand to help celebrate, according to Barros’s campaign.

The tickets are . . .? You guessed it, $40. Though should the spirit move you, the campaign invites you to give more.


If you have given the maximum allowed by Massachusetts campaign finance laws, $500, then, according to the online invitation: “We welcome you to join us at no cost. However, we urge you to bring new Barros supporters with you.”

The three-hour party starts at 3 p.m. Sept. 15, in Jamaica Plain.
