I had the opportunity to once again work with my friends over at HomeBase.org to cover the 'Mission Gratitude 2016' fundraiser - featuring 'The Beach Boys'! It was another great night of fund raising for this organizations efforts in support of Veterans and their families. Lots of dignitaries in attendance including Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, MA Governor Charlie Baker, as well as of host of supporters from the Red Sox Foundation, Massachusetts General Hospital, and various civic and business leaders from the greater Boston area.
Keynote speakers from the night included Peter Slavin, MD (Mass General), Tom Werner (Red Sox Management), Gen. Jack Hammond (Executive Director of HomeBase) and Medal of Honor Recipient (and New Hampshire's own) - Ryan Pitts.
The evening was capped off with a concert by 'The Beach Boys' featuring original band member - Mike Love. They played a great set and had everyone dancing in the aisles - what a fun night!
