We are so grateful to this year’s sponsors for helping to keep us afloat. Funds raised by the Shooze Cruise help us provide life-saving services, as well as much-needed footwear for the guests of St. Francis House.
The Shooze Cruise First Mates help St. Francis House underwrite the cost of the boat so that all funds raised go directly toward our life-saving programs and services. Thank you to this year’s members:
The 17th annual Shooze Cruise was a night of entertainment with musical artists, comedians, raffles, and more enjoyed in a virtual format from the comfort of our audience’s own home, all while helping to fulfill the urgent footwear needs of our homeless guests. Thanks to our generous supporters, we raised over $30,000 this year for our programs and services.
325 generous supporters set sail around the Boston Harbor on August 7th, 2019 to raise funds, collect shoewear and spread the word about St. Francis House’s work to rebuild lives by providing refuge, readiness and recovery services to adults experiencing homelessness in Boston.
Not only did #ShoozeCruise2019 raise $35,000 for St. Francis House’s programs and services, we collected 427 pairs of shoes – some of which were literally given out to guests in need of footwear the next morning! Check out the photo album on Facebook.
Our annual and ever-growing Shooze Cruise would not be possible without the leadership of our Emerging Leaders, SFH’s young professionals who spend months of hard work and dedication to plan the entire event as well as our friends at North 26 who donate the food each year and the staff and crew at Bay State Cruise Company who are always super helpful to work with. Not to mention our generous sponsors and First Mates, many of whom return year after year to make this all happen!
