There is a special evening coming up. For the past five years, Massachusetts General Hospital has hosted an annual fundraiser where one hundred different individuals or organizations are honored for contributions they have made to the cancer community. Happily, Dr. Alice Shaw will be recognized this year. Surprisingly, so will I. It should be one fun soiree, and all are invited. The down side: the tickets are bloody expensive ($500 each). However, $300 of that is tax deductible and the money raised benefits the MGH Cancer Center.
The venue is the Westin Boston Waterfront and there will be cocktails at 6:00 p.m. and Dinner and the Program at 7:00 p.m. Should additional incentive be needed, Academy Award winner Matt Damon is a special guest. For a complete list of nominees as well as more information:
