On October 23, we reaffirmed our commitment to our guests at All the Way Home, our annual leadership dinner.
The event was held at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and brought together 385 of Boston’s business leaders, philanthropists, and distinguished citizens to commemorate the thousands of lives that have been saved and changed by St. Francis House. David and Pamela Donohue received the All the Way Home award in recognition of their long-standing support of our mission.
The highlight of the evening was the debut of Finding the Light Again: Rose’s Story, a moving video about a former guest who overcame addiction and years of struggle with the help of our staff.
The event raised $440,000 in support of our crucial programs and services. Generous sponsors made the evening possible:
Bank of America, Global Partners LP/Alliance Energy LLC, JoAnn McGrath and Highland Street Foundation, Natixis Investment Managers, and Rosalyn and Richard Slifka.
