Hospice Gala - Care Dimensions

Hospice Gala



40th Anniversary Gala

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, we have reimagined our annual Hospice Auction & Regatta event and are proud to announce our upcoming Care Dimensions 40th Anniversary Gala, on Friday, June 15th at 6 pm at Tedesco Country Club in Marblehead. Buy your tickets online!

Since our founding in 1978 as Hospice of the North Shore, Care Dimensions has evolved from a small volunteer agency to the largest provider of hospice and palliative care in Massachusetts, serving over 800 patients and their families daily and touching the lives of hundreds of thousands in our communities over 40 years. This could not have been done without support from the 90 communities we serve. Your help ensures that those in their greatest time of need have access to expert physical, emotional and spiritual care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Your donations are put to work immediately, helping to bridge gaps in funding, support bereavement services for adults and children, and assure that exemplary care is given to all patients and their loved ones. Your sponsorship of and attendance at the 40th Anniversary Gala is key to ensure that these vital resources continue to be available to everyone.

The Anniversary Gala will be a spirited evening beginning at 6 pm with a cocktail reception, followed by a gourmet dinner and a short inspirational program and live auction. We will also enjoy dancing and live music from the amazing 18-piece Soft Touch Dance Band.

Live Auction Preview

The Live Auction will feature an exciting array of impressive travel excursions, sports items and VIP experiences. Proxy bids will be accepted. Below is a sneak peek at a few of the items up for bid or preview the whole list here:

Signature Artwork

This year’s signature artwork, Sunset in Gloucester Harbor, is a 24 x 30 original oil painting by Rockport artist, Ken Knowles. Two of Knowles’ favorite subjects, Gloucester schooners and the city skyline are washed with sunset colors. The blazing sky is not typical for Ken’s work and has taken decades to perfect. Care Dimensions is grateful to Ken for the donation of this beautiful painting and for his continued support of our mission.
