What a Night! Thank you for your support at the Summer Solstice Gala!

It was a wonderful night to party with purpose! Our community of friends and supporters joined VNA Care’s nurses and clinicians for a magical evening to celebrate our 10th annual benefit on Saturday, June 23. 

Thanks to the support of our wonderful sponsors and partners, we raised over $45,000 to provide the highest quality hospice and home health care to patients and families in the Needham area in order to enhance their quality of life.

The enchanting evening was filled with elegance, delicious food and spectacular entertainment from Jen Aldana who starred on The Voice. The celebration included a truly touching tribute to VNA Care’s hospice care and our Fund the Need program, led by co-chairs Louise Condon and Ellison Patten, which inspired so many to give of themselves and make a difference.
