September 29, 2017 GMT

BOWL-RICUA: Boston sports legends David Ortiz and Ray Allen teamed up with their wives, Tiffany and Shannon, to throw The Pros Bowl, a fundraiser for UNICEF USA at Kings Bowl America in Doral, Fla. Massachusetts came out to represent at the event, with former Bruin Shawn Thornton, “Wahlburgers” star Jim Wahlberg, Boston-born singer Nicky Jam and Milton-raised Florida Panther Keith Yandle all showing up to show their support. The evening raised $100,000 to benefit hurricane victims in Puerto Rico through UNICEF’s efforts.

ON THE CATWALK: Dust off your stilettos and steam your finest ensemble, because Boston Fashion Week is almost upon us! The official opening night of BFW17 is happening Oct. 1 at Explorateur on Tremont Street, where they’ll be debuting 18 fresh faces influencing local fashion. The evening will commence with a documentary short screening full of interviews of this year’s featured designers, behind-the-scenes looks and high-fashion photos that Tracy Aiguier shot throughout Downtown Crossing. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the screening starts at 7:30 p.m., so don’t plan on being too fashionably late.
