Dorchester’s Kate Audette sponsors a fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for September’s Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, which benefits the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund Clinic. Audette leads Team Kaiden, a group of friends and family members of her son, whom she lost to brain cancer. Audette and her team will walk the full 26.2 mile route together this year. Tonight’s fundraiser will be held between 8 and 11 p.m. at the Savin Bar and Kitchen, Savin Hill Avenue, Dorchester. Dancing on two levels of the venue will start at 10:30 p.m. when a DJ takes over. Complimentary appetizers will be served. Guests who arrive before 10:30 pm will be entered to win door prizes that include gift cards to local restaurants and spas, among other items. Tickets are $25 and are available at the door.
