On May 15th we held our Third Annual Hope Begins Here Awards Reception at Spinelli's in Lynnfield. With more than 200 guests, and over $20,000 in donations, we were surrounded by community support.
Thank you to Karen J. Krag, MD our Hope Begins Here honoree. It was a privilege to get to know you, to meet your family, friends, colleagues, and even some patients that stood up in a crowded room to show their support!
Thank you to our student scholarship recipients; Raquel Felipe of Peabody, Andrew Gibson of Ipswich, Susan Pomilla of South Hamilton and Jonathan Paly formerly of Marblehead now residing in Philadelphia. Your stories are an inspiration, and we are proud to know you.
Thank you to our long list of event sponsors, patrons and ticket purchasers. Big or small, each of your dollars brings us that much closer to helping members of our community affected by cancer.
Thank you to Spinelli's Function Facility, Lightshed Photography, Tony Gallo Music Services, Curran Brothers Florist and Cygnet Confections. Proud to say our vendors are top notch, accommodating and complete pros.
