The inaugural Boston Bites Back gala was held Saturday at the Concord home of Christine Grace and Sean Green, where guests honored Nicole Malachowski, the first USAF female Thunderbird fighter pilot and a Lyme disease advocate. The event — sponsored by Ride Out Lyme and the Dean Center for Tick Borne Illness — drew 120 guests including Dean Center and Ride Out Lyme cofounder Brandi Dean, Ride Out Lyme cofounder Jill Fulginite, WCVB’s Erika Tarantal, and Didier Cohen, a DJ, producer, and Lyme advocate. One of the highlights of the evening: the announcement of a $1 million grant to the Dean Center, with a focus on pediatric Lyme treatment.
