The featured event for fundraising at the 2018 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk


The Evening of Hope, organized by Tara Shuman and Amy Killeen, is a special night that celebrates the amazing progress that Dana-Farber continues to make in cancer research.

“Over 450 guests gather to enjoy dinner, live music, dancing, and a huge silent auction. This year we honor the memory of a great man, Steve Staffiere, who fought pancreatic cancer with grace and courage. We hope this year's event is even bigger and better than years prior!”
