St. Jude supporters from Boston and across New England came together for an intimate evening that included a cocktail hour, an installation of patient artwork, a seated dinner, musical entertainment and dancing.

This event was co-chaired by Judy Habib, Chair of the Board at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Dr. George Dekki of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Thank you for joining us for our inaugural Boston Hope Dinner to celebrate the dream of our founder, Danny Thomas: “No child should die in the dawn of life.”
