1. . The missing teen was recognized in West Roxbury by a Framingham woman who had seen his picture on Patch.

2. Tonight, the MetroWest ESL is holding a 1940-style Latin Ball for its annual fundraiser. Tickets are $100 for the event at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.

“We have a new spin on things this year,” says MWESL Fund Committee Chair Bruce Weisberg, a Senior Vice President at Middlesex Savings Bank. “We wanted to do something different. Unlike the usual benefit dinners of the past, this time we’re adding some music and dancing, and everyone’s invited.”

Hector Cuevos and his 16-piece Boston Latin Band are providing the music, while teachers from Arthur Murray Dance Studios will help get the crowd moving. A complimentary buffet dinner is included in the ticket price, with specialty desserts, coffees, and drinks available for purchase separately.

Framingham Adult ESL Director Christine Tibor describes the event as “a Havana club in the 1940s,” where attendees are welcome to dress up in period costume, or come just as they are. “The idea is that everyone will have a great time, with all proceeds to benefit the ESL program, which serves over 600 students annually,” she says. “And we’re so fortunate that we have been issued a matching fund challenge by Lisa and Sean McGrath of the Highland Street Foundation.  If we raise $70,000, they will donate an additional $30,000, bringing our total up over $100,000.”
