For every St. Patrick’s Day cookie decorating kit pre-ordered from Roma’s through March 11, Roma’s donated a portion of the proceeds to Colin’s Joy Project. Additionally, participants were eligible to win a $25 gift card, courtesy of Cathy Lomasney, when they decorated and posted their cookie to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #CookiesForColin. 

It was the second fundraising collaboration between Lomasney and Roma’s. In August, their “Cannolis for Colin” fundraiser raised $1,000 for Colin’s Joy Project. 

Colin's Joy ProjectColin’s Joy Project, which enhances play spaces and funds family-focused programming in the South Boston area, was established in memory of Colin McGrath, who was killed just short of his third birthday in 2018 when a car hit him while he was in a stroller being pushed by his nanny on a sidewalk in South Boston. 

Colin’s Joy Project was created in Colin’s memory “with the intent to continue to weave joy into the lives of others as Colin did.” Colin was a nephew of Lomasney’s daughter-in-law, Elizabeth McGrath-Lomasney.Winning Cookie

In addition to making donations to organizations such as First Teacher, Read Boston and the Boston Resiliency Fund, the Colin’s Joy Project is supporting renovations and additions to the M Street Park, the Marine Park playground and the South Boston Catholic Academy Educational Outdoor Playspace, all in Boston.
