It All Begins with Hope - HopeWell's 2022 Gala

Join us on October 27th!

Friends, champions, and supporters will gather for an evening to lift up the individuals and families who count on HopeWell.

Together, alongside emcee Latoyia Edwards from NBC10 Boston, we will celebrate all that we have accomplished and all that we look forward to. We are proud to be honoring Melissa MacDonnell and Liberty Mutual Insurance, who have been leaders throughout Boston for empowering youth and among our most committed supporters.
