NBC actor returns to Boston for fundraiser
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Actor John Krasinski is back in Boston. He returned to his home state Wednesday night to help raise money for cancer research.
The Newton native MC’d the Mass General Hospital Cancer Center’s annual fundraiser. The event paid tribute to 100 people and organizations who have helped fight the disease.
Krasinski said he’s excited to be back home to host the event, but for more than one reason.
“To give back to the city that I love has given me so much definitely, most importantly is to give back to this hospital that is doing so much incredible work,” he said. He added, “It’s always great to be back in Boston. It also helps that it’s good weather, that it’s not snowing and that the B’s are playing is always nice. It’s an extra special day.”
Krasinski was accompanied by his wife, actress Emily blunt.
