MHSA held its ninth annual fundraising event, Home for Good: Solutions Start Here, on the evening of May 16 at the Omni Parker House Hotel’s Rooftop Ballroom. With more than 330 people in attendance, it was MHSA’s largest and most successful fundraising event to date.
The evening, chaired by Rick Heller of Legal Sea Foods, focused on its honorees: Philip W. Johnston of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, Pamela Feingold of Eastern Bank, and Mark Winkeller of Caritas Communities. Phil, Pam, and Mark were presented with awards for their innumerable contributions to the statewide effort to end homelessness.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to congratulate three individuals who have put such significant effort, throughout their careers, toward ending homelessness in the Commonwealth,” said MHSA President and Executive Director Joe Finn.
MHSA wishes to say a hearty thank you to this year’s Raise the Roof sponsors — Eastern Bank and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts — and to all who came out on May 16 to show their support for the ongoing effort to bring our poorest neighbors home for good. Special thanks as well to Masako Yotsugi and her jazz trio for providing the evening's entertainment.
