Sailing Heals was thrilled to participate for the first time in the Friends of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center's 19th Annual Fall Fundraiser at the Moakley Courthouse in Boston on Nov. 17th. With over 300 supporters in attendance, the beautiful gala raises money for the "softer" but essential programs that support cancer patients at MGH-CC, like the popular Cancer Resource Center, and the HOPES Program which offers free wellness services, education and support workshops. The Friends has raised nearly $5 million over the years to make these important services possible! Sailing Heals is very pleased that our involvement in the Gala, along with our auction donation of an afternoon sail out of the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead w/ accompanying lunch, all helped to make 2011 another successful fundraising year.
