Hearth's Celebration and Awards Gala

  • Fairmont Copley Plaza 138 Saint James Avenue Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

Hearth is excited to announce we are celebrating our 25th anniversary and we invite you to join us as we commemorate the many strides we have made in our mission to end elder homelessness.

On Monday, October 16, 2017 Hearth will honor Mayor Martin J. Walsh and pay tribute to the achievements of the seven founders of Hearth; Anna Bissonnette, Ellen Feingold, Elsie Frank, Diana Laskin Siegal, Sandra Albright, Joanne Bluestone, and Ruth Cowin, at our 25th Anniversary Celebration and Award Gala at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.  Please join us as we recognize these outstanding individuals, whose dedication to our community has made impactful changes for our most vulnerable citizens.  

Proceeds from the gala will aid our work to end elder homelessness. Today, there are over 8,000 homeless adults over the age of 50 living in Massachusetts.  With the likelihood of this number greatly increasing by 2020, our work in ending elder homelessness is more critical than ever before. 

We are honored recognize Mayor Martin J. Walsh as the first recipient of the Anna Bissonnette Award for his dedication to creating more affordable housing; his initiative to end chronic homelessness in Boston; and his unwavering commitment to ensuring that seniors live their lives in with wellness and dignity.  In keeping with Anna’s spirit and belief in helping others less fortunate, the award is bestowed to an individual who has had a profound and direct impact on changing the lives of Boston’s most vulnerable populations.. 

The success of our Celebration and Awards Gala will not be possible without your generosity.  Consider sponsoring the Gala and help us to end elder homelessness. 

Commitments made by August 18th will be printed in the invitation, and program booklet, and will be listed on our website.
