Since the early 1990s, Fenway Health’s annual fundraising galas have been cornerstones of the greater Boston LGBTQIA+ community’s social calendar. The Dinner Party, created in 1992, was a formal and fun evening to raise vital funding for Fenway, to shine a spotlight on women’s health, and to throw a fabulous celebration of LBTQIA+ women and honor their many contributions to health care for all.
Two years later, Fenway Men’s Event was launched. This celebration of philanthropy and community soon became one of the hottest nights out for Boston’s LGBTQIA+ community and its allies. Tens of thousands have danced, dined, laughed, and enjoyed our signature events over the years, and we couldn’t be more thankful to you all.
After two years of virtual events due to COVID-19, the Men’s Event and Dinner Party have been reborn as one spectacular evening of celebration and community. The inaugural Fenway Health Gala will be held May 24 at historic Fenway Park.
The Dinner Party and the Men’s Event are cherished parts of Fenway Health history, and we are excited to see their legacies live on through the Gala.
Today’s guests are Taylor Brown and Mary Beth McInerney. Taylor and Mary Beth are Co-Chairs of this year’s Fenway Health Gala. Taylor is also a former Men’s Event Co-Chair, and Mary Beth is a former Dinner Party Co-Chair.
