Officials to gather at charity St. Patrick Day’s dinner

A large turnout of statewide and regional elected officials and office seekers will gather at a charity St. Patrick Day’s dinner organized by state Senator Sal DiDomenico, an Everett Democrat, on Friday at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Charlestown. Mayors Martin Walsh of Boston and Carlo DeMaria of Everett, members of the congressional delegation, and Democratic and Republican statewide candidates are among those expected at the bipartisan event, according to DiDomenico, who will serve as master of ceremonies. All proceeds will go to a new foundation that DiDomenico has established to award scholarships to high school seniors from his district, which includes Chelsea, Everett, a portion of Cambridge, and the Charlestown, Beacon Hill, and Allston-Brighton sections of Boston. DiDomenico said all 380 tickets to the dinner sold out in four days, and he estimates the event will raise about $30,000 for his foundation.
