The Fenway Gala

On Saturday, May 20, nearly 600 people filled the ballroom of the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport for the 2023 Fenway Health Gala, a fabulous celebration of LGBTQIA+ health and community. Thanks to the generosity of our attendees, we raised $650,000 to support the lifesaving programs and services of Fenway Health!

We’d like to thank each and every person who helped make this evening such a success. Thank you to our wonderful MC, Jessica Brown of WCVB Channel 5, for leading our program. Thank you to our Gala Co-Chairs Michael Oliveri and Jennifer Petter, and the many Table Captains who helped bring such joy and energy to the ballroom.

We’d like to give special thanks to our awardees. Thank you to Boston Pride For The People for being exceptional community leaders! And thank you so much to the Hale family for their incredible support of Fenway Health, both before and during the Gala. The Hales surprised us with a generous matching gift during the evening! We cannot thank them enough for their generosity.

We’d also like to thank our Gala entertainment, IT Factor Live Entertainment and DRAMA, for getting everyone on the dance floor for a fantastic After Party!

Thank you to all the wonderful Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport staff, and to the Fenway Health Development and Communications teams for putting together such a special evening. Last but certainly not least, thank you to all our attendees. We had an amazing time together and can’t wait to see you again next year!

The Fenway Gala

May 20, 2023

Omni Boston Seaport

We are pleased to announce that The Fenway Health Gala has two components this year—The Main Event and The After Party. We have added two ticket options so that guests can enjoy both events or only the After Party! This is the “see and be seen event” of the season, with glamour and elegance worthy of our history and future. The Fenway Health Gala is the latest evolution of our historic fundraisers, The Dinner Party and The Men’s Event.

Main Event

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The main event, with a cocktail hour, seated dinner, and live auction begins with the red carpet. Whether you rent a limo, an Uber, or simply come downstairs from your hotel room, you’ll want to make an entrance! The Red Carpet will be complete with a step and repeat and our videographers, photographers, and host to capture your look when you arrive.

The Main Event will showcase the love, progress, and work that remains for equitable health care for all. We will recognize and honor the lifetime commitments of those who paved the roads those who show the promise and resolve to continue the work.

After Party

9:00 PM - 12:00 AM

The After Party will serve as both an extension of the Gala’s Main Event and a stand-alone event for those who want the celebration and community without the program. The After Party will have its own unique energy and experiences separate from the Main Event and will feature a deejay, drinks, live entertainment, refreshments, and a whole lot of dancing. The After Party will be held together by fashion, friendship, and your phone! Throughout the evening we will be making announcements about special guest appearances, auction item closings, special drinks, and other highlights!
