Boston young professionals to gather for kids battling cancer, other life-threatening diseases
04/24/2019

Evening of networking, entertainment to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Online PR News – 24-April-2019 – Boston, MA – (April 27, 2019) More than 700 young professionals from the Boston area are anticipated to attend the seventh annual Toast to St. Jude event presented by The Raymond and Elaclaire Gosselin Foundation at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27th, at the Revere Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.

The evening of cocktails, dancing and fundraising benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Since the inaugural Toast to St. Jude launched six years ago, generous donors have raised more than $378,000 through this event. This year the dedicated volunteer committee is projected to raise another $220,000. Thanks to events like this one, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

"It's outstanding. Each year we grow in such a heartwarming way as familiar faces and new faces want to make a difference in the lives of St. Jude kids," said founder and co-chair Anthony Nader. "With this growing awareness, we are grateful for the increased attendance and sponsor commitments each year."

In addition to The Raymond and Elaclaire Gosselin Foundation, other sponsors include Definitive Healthcare, Longwood Group, NGKF, Prellwitz Chilinski Associates, AKF Group LLC, Brookline Bank, Goulston & Storrs, Jessicas Brick Oven, Nutter McClennen & Fish, Waters Company, RSM, CE Floyd, Dean College, Greystar, Horvath and Tremblay, IUOE Local #877, People's United Bank, and The Duke Company. Colton Bradford from 101.7 The Bull is back to host the event again this year.

Tickets are available online and at the door. Attendees must be 21 or older. To make a donation or purchase a ticket, visit stjude.org/toasttostjude.
