U.S. 30 in Schererville. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Cardiovascular Research program at the hospitals of Community Healthcare System.

Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar and Community Healthcare System’s Cardiovascular Research program are teaming up this February - American Heart Month, to raise funding and awareness regarding heart disease. It’s a way to share great food and good times with the one you love by treating your sweetheart to a special night out and, at the same time, play a part in life-saving research.

Heart disease is our nation’s and Northwest Indiana residents’ leading cause of death. Through Community Healthcare System’s Cardiovascular Research program, Northwest Indiana and south suburban Chicagoland residents have access to new treatment options available only through clinical trials and studies available at Community Hospital in Munster, St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago and St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart.

Boston’s, 625 W. U.S. Highway 30 in Schererville, will donate $1 to the cardiovascular research program of Community Healthcare System for every heart-shaped pizza sold during Valentine’s weekend, Feb. 13 to 15. Diners and their guests also have the option to purchase paper hearts for $1 each during the “Spread the Love” campaign which runs February 3 through February 23.

Boston’s is open for lunch and dinner, Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 12 midnight. Or, check out the Good To Go! Take Out Menu at
