Martha’s Vineyard resident Carly Simon was on the mainland over the weekend, appearing with her son, Ben Taylor, at a fund-raiser for BINA Farm Center, which provides equine therapy programs for people with a range of disabilities.
The “You’re So Vain” chanteuse performed a few tunes with Ben and his fiance, British singer Sophie Hiller, at the event at the Ritz-Carlton. The evening’s surprise guest was a gray Shetland pony.
Meanwhile, former Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek was at Westin Copley Place for Joslin Diabetes Center’s annual black-tie High Hopes Gala. Tek, whose parents and younger brother have diabetes, showed off his World Series bling and gave a signed baseball to 13-year old Joslin patient Will Matthews.
Also there were Joslin CEO Dr. Peter Amenta and wife Edna, JC Monahan, Kiss 108’s Billy Costa, Jerry Rossi of The TJX Companies, and Marylou Sudders, the state’s secretary of Health & Human Services.
