Caregivers are nothing if not adaptable. In that spirit, our gala is evolving into the first-ever Virtual Winter Ball. The health and safety of our caregivers and our community are always our top priority, so while we hoped to gather in person this year, we are instead…adapting! The 12th annual event will be held VIRTUALLY for the first time ever on Friday, December 4, 2020, 6:30 pm.

Now, more than ever, we need your participation to show our tremendous gratitude for our caregivers who work selflessly on the front lines in the midst of incredible challenge and uncertainty. 

There are two ways you can celebrate our champion caregivers with us.

Auction

An exciting auction is just one of the highlights of the Winter Ball. It features many wonderful, sought-after items, such as premier trips, spectacular golf outings, delectable dining experiences, sporting event packages and much more (new items appear annually). An amazing mobile auction will be going live 2 weeks prior to the event. Be on the lookout for a catalog listing some of our fabulous items.

Sponsors

It is the resilience of our workforce to do anything in the circumstances that makes the difference in our community’s fight against Coronavirus. The 2020 Winter Ball will be an expression of gratitude and a celebration of the amazing front line caregivers whose compassionate and incredible work is successfully fighting the pandemic.
 

Your sponsorship will make the difference for our caregivers and patients at a critical stage for our community. 

 

Please note that the sponsor level benefits have recently changed in order to provide the best balance of appreciation, celebration, and safety in light of the current public health status of our region and Governor Baker's orders.
