About

For decades, you joined us at The Men’s Event and The Dinner Party to celebrate healthcare as a right, not a privilege, and to join together with your community. In 2022, these two galas are reborn as The Fenway Gala – one night, one community, working towards one future. This special evening puts a focus on inclusion and on ensuring that the funds raised go towards our mission – half of your ticket price goes directly to the work we do!

For those missing the more casual side of the galas, we are thrilled to present additional spring and summer events, including Fenway Social: a Sip, Sample & Support event at TimeOut Market on June 29, 2022.

At Fenway Health, we champion a philosophy of integrated care that approaches each patient as a whole person.

Fenway Health believes that healthcare is a right and not a privilege. We advocate for and deliver innovative, equitable, accessible health care, supportive services, and transformative research and education. We center LGBTQIA+ people, BIPOC individuals, and other underserved communities to enable our local, national, and global neighbors to flourish.
