Our 13th Annual Shooze Cruise started wet, but by the time we set sail, the sun was peeking out over Boston Harbor. A giant dance party percolated all night on the top deck of the Provincetown II and we were thrilled that our friends from Natixis brought over 50 guests on board. Over 300 people attended the cruise, despite the drizzle, and we thank you for showing up! We collected over 300 pairs of shoes from guests boarding the Cruise and between sponsorships, host committee memberships and ticket sales we were able to raise just over $33,500. An amazing sum!

We started distributing those 300 pairs of shoes the very next day. If you were unable to attend, you can still help us by donating shoes, either in person at 39 Boylston Street, or by using this online form.

Thank you so much to our 2016 Shooze Cruise Sponsors, especially to our Admiral Level sponsor this year, Clarks America of Newton Massachusetts. Another special thanks to the folks at North 26 Restaurant and Chef Julia Brant for providing most all of the food to us for free. There was a bountiful presentation which include an amazing shrimp tower and lobster sliders.

We are so thankful to everyone who was a part of the Cruise. Our guests are able to benefit directly from your generosity.

Hope to see you all on the Cruise again next year!
