Afraid you might die of excitement? Well there’s more! Two surprise Boston a capella groups will be joining us on this special night! The proceeds of the show, collected through suggested donations, will be given to the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Fund to help all those who suffered tremendously from the recent catastrophe.
