The 2019 Changing Lives Gala

The 2019 Changing Lives Gala at the beautiful Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel on May 23rd was an inspiring celebration of the men, women and children served everyday by Bay Cove, and raised more than $300,000 to support our programs and services. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and live jazz from Heliotrope Swing, took part in a silent auction filled with amazing and unique items and experiences, and were then treated to a wonderful and exotic dinner of Asian-inspired dinner created by our special guest chef, Lydia Shire of @scampoboston.

Our emcee and auctioneer extraordinaire Susan Wornick delighted the crowd, as always, as she conducted a truly spirited live auction. And the highpoint of the evening was the presentation of Bay Cove's Changing Lives Award to Michael and Kitty Dukakis. All of us at Bay Cove were so proud to honor Massachusetts' former Governor and First Lady for their decades of steadfast leadership in the fight against the marginalization and stigmatization of individuals impacted by mental illness and substance use disorder

We offer our profound thanks to all our guests who made the evening such a special one!
