How We're Spending Our Summer!

It’s summer and we’ve been hopping at Boston Standard Company! We’re proud to announce that we’re sponsoring Men of Boston Cook for Women’s Health. This amazing organization raises funds and awareness to improve women’s health in our community.

Men of Boston will be having a supremely tasty fundraiser on Thursday, October 1 at 6:00 PM at its annual Under the Tent Gala at the Codman Square Health Center at 637 Washington Street in Dorchester. All proceeds go to benefit local women’s health programming. If you would like more information, or would like to join us under the tent, please contact Scotland Huber at (617) 822-8734 for tickets or more information. Since 1995, Men of Boston has raised more than $2 million in support of women’s health.

We also sponsored the All Dorchester Sports League this summer, and helped raise funds to repair and rehabilitate the facilities and bleachers. Regardless of your favorite sports, ADSL has something for you! ADSL sponsors baseball, softball and basketball programs, and also offers fitness classes for kids of all ages, along with tutoring and homework help programs for kids between the ages of 10 and 18! Check out the ADSL at All Dorchester Sports Website/.

We had so much fun sponsoring the Franklin Park Zoo last year that we did it again this year. This year, Boston Standard Company sponsored the dwarf crocodile exhibit. We find a lot of things in the sewers around Boston, but thankfully, we’ve never run across any of these guys! The West African Dwarf Crocodile only grows to about 5 feet in length, and they’re slow movers, but they’ve got plenty of time – they have a life expectancy of up to 100 years! You can find this guy in the Tropical Forest exhibit at the Franklin Park Zoo.

With all of these great projects, you may be wondering whether we’ve gotten any work done. Well, we’re glad you asked! Check out our latest “rough” work on a great new coffee shop near South Station. Gracenote Coffee is an independently owned 200 square-foot espresso and coffee bar serving locally roasted in Boston’s Historic Leather District. We’re happy to say that we did the plumbing work for their compact new kitchen, and B. Haley Designs did the design work, so raise a cup to this fabulous space when you stop and pay them a visit!

For more information about what we’ve been up to, or to get some plumbing work done on your own fabulous space, contact us at Boston Standard Plumbing & Heating at (617) 288-2911 anytime.
