Islands Expedition Gala

From Mykonos to Manhattan. From St. Thomas to…yes, Thompson Island! Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 7th to meet us at the Seaport Hotel for our ISLANDS Expedition Gala.

We’ll take you on a tour of some of the world’s most beautiful islands with an array of silent and live auction items that will entice island lovers, with items ranging from paradise getaways to Boston-based Caribbean feasts.

We’ll focus on the closest island: Thompson Island, where we’re changing lives through challenge and discovery!
