CHANGING LIVES GALA

JOIN US FOR THE 2017 CHANGING LIVES GALA!

On June 14 at 6 p.m., Bay Cove hosts our annual Changing Lives Gala at the Seaport Boston Hotel. The gala is Bay Cove's largest annual fundraiser, and a wonderful evening celebrating the vital work done by the agency and the incredible individuals we serve each day.

This year, we're thrilled to be honoring Alma Wahlberg—matriarch of one of Boston’s best-known families—with the 2017 Changing Lives Award. Alma and her children have tirelessly supported organizations throughout Greater Boston that serve the most vulnerable people in our community. In doing so, and by sharing their family’s own story of struggles and triumphs, they have inspired hope and combated the stigma often associated with significant personal challenges.

The Changing Lives Gala will feature a dinner specially designed by Paul Wahlberg, owner and executive chef of Alma Nove and Wahlburgers. The gala also includes a cocktail reception, live music, a silent auction, plus a live auction hosted by celebrity auctioneer Susan Wornick, where attendees can bid on an array of unique items and experiences.

Individual tickets to the gala are $250, and sponsorships at a variety of levels are still available. To reserve seats for the event, please call 617-371-3184, or visit www.baycove.org/gala. We hope to see you at the Gala!
